TOMATO GRAVY

I always search for different sambhar/chutneys/korma for tiffin.Being a native of Tamil nadu, most of us make idly/dosa at least 4-5 days in a week.I dont like to repeat the same side dishes.So whenever i browse , meet my friends ,neighbors , i surely ask them for side dish they make for idly/dosa/chapatti.

Last week my school friend called me and we talked more than one hour discussing our past, present etc:) I asked her about the side dishes.She told me the recipe for this gravy and i tried for dosa.Of course it tastes well with chapatti too by making it little thick. Very simple and delicious..I made it very little , please adjust all the ingredients according to ur requirement.

TOMATO GRAVY!!

Ingredients:

  • Tomato – 2 nos (chopped )
  • Big onion – 1 no (finely chopped)
  • Salt & water – as  needed
  • Coriander leaves – to garnish

To grind:

  • Coconut –  forefinger size piece.
  • Ginger - 1` inch size
  • Green chilly – 1-2 nos(i added one)
  • Fennel seeds/Soambu/Perunjeeragam – 1/4 tsp

To season:

  • Mustard seeds – 1/4 tsp
  • Urad dal – 1/4 tsp
  • Curry leaves – few

Method:

  • Chop and cook the tomatoes.
  • Grind all the items given under “to grind “ along with cooked tomatoes using required water.Make it a paste.Set aside.
  • Now heat the kadai with a tsp of oil and season all the items given above.Add the chopped onions and saute till transparent.
  • Now add the ground tomato masala to it and boil till raw smell leaves it. May take 5 mins.Add water if u make it for idly/dosa.If for chapatti, add less water so that gravy should be thick.
  • Finally garnish with coriander leaves and serve!!
