Simple Tomatillo Onion curry

This recipe is purely mine :) but inspired by my mom's methods. Whenever i went grocery shopping, I always wondered what these Tomatillo's are, i thought they were some variety of green tomatoes, but no they belong to the gooseberry family, gooseberry's hmmm my mouth watered this also reminded me that my Dad always said his grandma made the best green tomato curry, nobody in my family has the recipe...with all these going on in my head, i finally bought some Tomatillo's...but let me tell you they are very tart..
but me and my husband loved the curry..may be one day try to make a chutney of it
