3. Take a heavy vessel and place half a cup of oil in it. Place the chopped onions in the oil and cook till soft and pink. Add all the spice powders, and lower the flame. Add the tomatoes and allow to soften. Add the cooked beans along with the coconut milk. Stir well, add the jaggery and allow to simmer slowly till only a thick gravy and the beans remain.
