I have been making variations of this sauce for years. It is nice and spicy and very simple to make using these ingredients - you can use more authentic ones if you have time. This can be used for almost any meat or vegetable.

Fry onions in oil on low-medium heat until tender, adding cumin, ground coriander, fenugreek, turmeric, garam masala and chilli powder at the end. (If using fresh garlic and ginger add this now.)
