In a tray, mix together the All-Purpose Flour (1/4 cup) and Paprika (1 tsp).

Flip carefully and cook the other side for 2 more minutes or until crispy. Remove from the pan.
step 5
Add the Yellow Onion (1/2), Garlic (3 cloves), and Fresh Ginger (1/2 Tbsp) into the hot pan, and saute until soft and fragrant. Add the Ground Coriander (1 tsp), Paprika (1 tsp), Red Chili Powder (1/2 tsp), and Ground Turmeric (1/2 tsp) and stir until well combined.
step 6
Add the Crushed Tomatoes (1 can), Fresh Cilantro (2 Tbsp), and Brown Sugar (1/2 Tbsp), stir, and let it simmer for 3 minutes. Season with Salt (1/2 tsp) and Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp).
