Chop 'em!

Chop the green peppers (hari mirch).

Add 1 teaspoon of cumin seed (jeera) to the pot.

Turn up the heat.

Mix and stir until the onions begin to brown

Find your tomato sauce.

Add 1/4 cup tomato sauce into a blender.

Find your yogurt.

Add 1/4 cup yogurt into blender containing tomato sauce.

Pour the blended paste back into the pot.

Mix and stir.

Add 1 teaspoon of turmeric (haldi).
