    3 tbsp oil
    2 medium-sized onions (finely chopped)
    3-4 green chillies (finely chopped)
    1 tbsp ginger paste
    1 ½ tbsp garlic paste
    4 medium-sized tomatoes (finely chopped)

    Heat oil in a pan and add three-fourths of the onions. Sauté till light brown. Add green chillies and ginger-garlic paste. Stir-fry for half a minute. Add half of the tomatoes and cook on medium heat for three to four minutes, stirring continuously or till oil separates from the masala.
