  • 2 Tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Teaspoon grated ginger
  • 2 serrano chiles, seeded and diced
  • 1 Teaspoon coriander
  • 1 Teaspoon cumin

Directions

In a large pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Sauté the onions until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add in the garlic, ginger, and chiles and cook for 2 minutes. Add in the coriander, cumin, paprika, turmeric, and cinnamon. Cook for another 2 minutes.
