  2. Heat a pan. Add oil as required to fry onions.
  3. Add chopped onions and ginger garlic paste and fry till raw smell goes.
  4. Then add chopped tomatoes and saute for 2 mins.
  5. Now add turmeric powder, chilli powder, coriander powder and fry a minute and immediately add some water to retain the colour.
  6. Allow to boil for 2 mins. Then add smashed potatoes, boiled green gram, salt and garam masala.
  7. Mix well and Add required water to get gravy consistency. Close with a lid and Cook for 5-7 mins so that all masala flavours are absorbed by the gram.
