Tomato Kurma- Very simple and tasty
This recipe is from Mallika Badrinath's cookbook. I like this recipe for it's simplicity.
Onion chopped-1 cup
Tomatoes chopped-2 small
Coriander leaves-to garnish
To grind with little water into a smooth paste:
Almonds-20(can use cashews)
Green chilli-small piece(or according to spice level)
Coriander seeds-1 tsp
Garam masala powder-1/2 tsp
Heat oil in a pan. Add star anise. Fry for 10 seconds. Add onions. Sprinkle salt. Fry till it turns soft.
Add tomatoes. Cook till tomatoes turn soft.
Add the ground paste and some more salt. Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup water if the gravy is very thick. Bring the mixture to boil. Simmer for 15 minutes. Add sugar. Stir well.
Garnish with coriander leaves.
Serve with rotis or pooris.
