Tomatoes cut in half, add half of turmeric (1/4 tsp), crushed garlic, tamarind, pour 300 ml of water and bring to a boil, boil for 5 minutes.

Шаг 2

In a coffee grinder grind 1 tsp fennel with black pepper.
The grinder I have, so I used regular Malenko for black pepper.

Шаг 6

Шаг 7

Those are the spices I used.
I would also like to give a few tips:
1) Highlight a separate bowl where you will be cooking Indian food. The smell of spices is very stable and it is difficult to "launder" from ware.
2) Races prepared according to this recipe, it turns out medium spicy (but everyone has different tastes!). If you like witty, then increase the amount of chili peppers.
3) Tamarind plays the role of oxidizer. I guess you could replace it with lemon, but I have not tried.
