  4. Heat oil and ghee in a kadai or handi and add whole garam masala – cinnamon, green cardamoms, cloves and tej patta and sauté till fragrant.

  8. Add tomato puree, turmeric/haldi powder, red chili powder, coriander/dhania powder, salt and sugar.
  9. Cover the kadai and cook on a low flame for 10- 15minutes. Stir occasionally so that the masala does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
