They shouldn't be too mushy,but should be soft enough and crumble when you press.

Now take a deep pan and add oil and once the oil is heated add cumin seeds.

Once cumin splutter add onion paste,little salt,turmeric.

Once they get slightly brown add ginger garlic paste and fry until raw flavours are gone.
