  2. Then break red chillies into few pieces and add it, then add chopped onions and fry till the onions turn translucent.
  3. Now add tamarind and cook for a minute.
  4. Then add the grated coconut and turn off the heat. Let it cool and then grind it into a fine paste. Add salt and adjust the consistency by adding required water.

I usually do not temper it at the end. If needed, you can temper it with oil, mustard seeds and curry leaves and mix it with it and serve.
