Heat oil in a wok or kadai, stir fry the chopped onions till translucent. Meanwhile open the can of coconut milk and pour it into small glass or bowl. Add 1 cup water to the coconut milk can. Swish it around the can and add this thin liquid to the onions, along  with the slit green chilies, garlic, tomato, chilli powder and haldi. Bring to a boil.
