Cover the mixture and cook for 4 to 5 minutes till the raw smell disappears and the oil starts oozing out. Now mix the ginger garlic paste with this masala and saute it for 1 minute. Followed by tomato puree and scald well. Cover and cook this mixture for 2 minutes. Next add in the coarsely ground paste from table 4  and mix evenly. Pour in the tamarind juice and combine well.
