Add the onions and cumin seeds and cook over moderately low heat, stirring until the onions soften, 7 to 8 minutes. Stir in the chickpea flour and fenugreek and cook, stirring until the chickpea flour becomes a paste and browns slightly, 2 to 3 minutes more. Pour in 2 cups of warm water and bring to a boil, over moderately high heat. Cook, stirring, until the gravy begins to thicken, about 1 minute. Add 2 more cups of water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook until the gravy reduces and thickens slightly, about 10 minutes. Stir in the chiles, ginger, ground coriander, tumeric, brown sugar, and salt and cook for 5 minutes longer, stirring gently. Drain the vegetables and add them to the gravy. Stir in the tomatoes and bay leaves, cover and cook until the vegetables are tender but not mushy, about 20 to 30 minutes. (If making this dish ahead, under cook the vegetables slightly. Refrigerated the dish for up to 2 days. When re-heating the mixture, add 1/2 cup of water and bring to a simmer over moderate heat before proceeding.) Stir in the tamarind mixture and the fresh coriander and cook, uncovered for 5 minutes. Discard the bay leaves and serve. NOTE: Serve with cooling fresh Pineapple for those that do not like the heat.
