Grind together all the ingredients of Kolhapuri masala into a fine powder and set aside. Heat two tbsps of oil in a Kadai. Add grated coconut, cloves, peppercorns, cashews, corriander seeds and red chilli. Fry well.
Add 1/4th of the onions and cook till slightly brown. Cool and grind it into a paste. Set aside.
Heat oil in a Kadai. Add the remaining chopped onions and saute till brown. Add tomatoes, ginger-garlic paste, red chilli powder, turmeric powder and masala paste. Add water and cook for few minutes.
