We make this too. We call it 'Enngayi'. Difference is we use very thick tamarind extract a little. Looks good Priya.

This looks like a wonderful and easy curry; have you ever thought of wearing swimming goggles to chop the onions? I hear it is very effective! :)

I too don't like chopping onions, especially if there is a large quantity to be chopped up.
