Steps :
1. Here are all the ingredients. I have cut the onions in bulbs.
2. Take 1/2 cup of luke water in a bowl and soak tamarind in the water for 15 minutes.

4. Discard the residue and save the tamarind water for later.
5. Heat a pan, add peanuts and roast it for 2-3 minutes or till peanuts starts changing its color. Here I am using skinless peanuts, you can roast the peanuts and discard its skin and then use them.
6. Add white sesame seeds and desiccated coconut and roast for more 2-3 minutes or till the mixture turns golden.
7. The mixture is ready. Tale out in a plate and let it cool down completely.
8. Take the roasted mixture and 1/2 cup of water in a grinder and make smooth paste.
9. Take out the paste in a bowl and keep it side.
10. Heat oil in a pan / wok on medium flame, add onion bulbs and saute till onion turns slightly translucent.
11. Once done, take out the onions in a plate and keep it side.

 13. Add coriander and cumin powder and red chili powder and saute them for 30 seconds.
NOTE: Here I am using kashmiri red chili powder which is mild in spice level and gives a good color to the curry. If you are using regular chili powder, just add 1/2 tablespoon of it. For good color, you can use red food color. 
14. Add ginger and garlic paste and turmeric powder, saute them for 1 minute.
15. Add the peanut paste and mix well. Cover and let it simmer in the spices for 5 minutes on low flame.
