Heat a kadai with oil (I used rice bran oil) add in the minced onion, ginger, garlic and green chilli. Saute it for 3-5 mins or until it starts to turn light brown. Add in Kashmiri chilli powder, organic turmeric powder, coriander powder, and garam masala. Give it a nice mix on low flame for 30 seconds so that the raw flavor of the masalas diminishes.
