Heat the oil in a 4 quart pot over medium heat. Drop in the whole fennel, cumin seeds, and fenugreek seeds and as soon as they begin to darken, pour in the blended paste. Stir and fry the past until it is a golden brown (can take 20 minutes or longer) do not burn.

Add the coriander, cumin and turmeric to the fried paste, lower the heat and continue to stir and fry for 2 minutes. Pour in tomato sauce, raise heat to medium and stir and fry for another 5 minutes.
