Add a pinch of salt while sauting which will enable the onions to cook quickly, When the shallots are transparent, add the ground mixture(shallots+green chillies+garlic Paste) to the pan and mix well and allow it to boil in low flame till the raw smell of the shallots goes off. Then add chopped tomatoes and allow it to cook completely
