To lay stress on the fact that this curry is good for heart, the chopped onions have been shaped like a heart, and chopped chillies are there too

Boiled in a pan, till soft, and peeled. You can pressure cook too. Let it cool down, then cube them. Let the pieces be chunky and slightly big.

Abroad non stick pan heated up, oil added and all the above mentioned seasonings added and onions and green chillies added and sauteed well
