Method :

And ten fry the onions till they are brown. Remove them.
In the same oil put in the tomatoes [ cutted into 4 pieces each] stir them till the skin of the tomatoes starts to leave. Remove it.
Note- you have to let all the ingredients cool before grinding them.
When its cool grind it in the mixture, add in salt and tamarind.
Serve with idlies, dosa or parathas.

Other variation with it:

  1. You can add boiled eggs in it if you are eating it with parathas or roti
