Heat 2 tablespoons canola oil in a deep pan over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and fry until golden. Take off the heat. Transfer the fried onions from the pan to a food processor. Grind the onions, tomatoes, green chillies into a smooth paste.

Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of canola oil in the same pan over medium heat. Add the onion paste. Fry for 2-3 minutes. Stir in ginger and garlic and all the dry spices. Fry until the oil begins to separate from the onion tomato mixture.
