“I made this recipe for the first time last night. As usual, I got it from an internet website. I'm posting it here because I like to have all my recipes in one place, and because it turned out so very tasty. My husband gave it a ten. I have modified it a little from the original version which I found on because it said it would feed five, but I was sure from the ingredient quantities that it wasn't going to. Also, the original recipe says to grind whole spices and I just begin with the ground spices, so here is my version of the recipe!”

  2. Cut the onions coarsely and sauté them but do not let them turn brown.
  3. Put the onions in a blender and add coarsely chopped garlic and green chillies. Puree.(If you prefer a milder dish then leave the chillies out and just go with the red chilli powder.).
