    • Dear Rupa,
      When grinding, not necessary to add onion. If you wish to add, you can slice one small onion and roast it and grind with the other spices. I have never used tomatoes for this curry, but no harm if you want to use instead of tamarind. Use two medium tomatoes, chopped, and fry the tomatoes in the first step, i.e. fry the sliced onion, then add the chopped tomatoes and fry few minutes. Then add the mutton…. and follow the recipe. Please feel free to write if you have any questions. Take Care,
