Add ginger-garlic paste, coriander powder, turmeric powder, roasted cumin powder, half of the green chillies and stir well. Sauté for two to three minutes. Add one cup of water and stir.

Add tomato slices and salt to taste. Add garam masala powder, sliced spring onions with greens and remaining chopped coriander leaves.
