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.
3. After 15 minutes squeeze the tamarind in the water to extract its pulp.
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.
