Basic Tomato Curry
This is a basic tomato curry that I relish a lot. My grand mother used to make it for chappathi. It goes well with rotis, poori and even rice.
This is what you need.
Tomatoes 2 medium size
green chillies 2 slit in length
jaggery a pinch or according to taste
salt according to taste
Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp
jeera 1/2 tsp.
HIng a pinch,
Boil water in a pan. Blanch the tomatoes in the hot water for 15 - 20 mts. Once you remove the lid, you will see the tomato peel has started to come off.
Once cooled, peel the skin of the tomatoes and puree it in a blender.
Heat a pan. Add oil and splutter the mustard seeds, jeera and curry leaves and green chilli. Now add the tomato puree, hing, salt and let it come to a boil. Allow it to simmer till the consistency you want. Add jaggery at the end according to taste.
You can increase or decrease the chilli according to your taste.
Enjoy with hot chappathi's.
