    Now take a pan and add refined oil in it. Heat it over moderate flame. Then put grated onions in it and fry till they turn slightly pinkish in hue. Add garlic along with ginger in the same pan and cook the ingredients for about 2-3 minutes on medium flame. Stir well and cook on low heat for 2 more minutes. Now add tomato puree and turmeric powder in the pan, and cook for 5-7 minutes on medium flame. Keep stirring the ingredients so that they don't stick to the bottom of the pan.
