Tomato Kurma- Very simple and tasty



This recipe is from Mallika Badrinath's cookbook. I like this recipe for it's simplicity.

Ingredients:
Onion chopped-1 cup
Tomatoes chopped-2 small
Oil-1 tbsp
Star Anise-1
Salt
Sugar-1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves-to garnish

To grind with little water into a smooth paste:
Coconut-1/4 cup
Almonds-20(can use cashews)
Green chilli-small piece(or according to spice level)
Red chillies-2
Coriander seeds-1 tsp
Garam masala powder-1/2 tsp

Method:
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.

  49. Hi mahimaa, answer to your question..
    The sauted tomato and onions pieces stand out giving a separate flavour to the rice grains
    while the ground tomato with the masala penetrates into the rice grains(as the rice is cooked in that mixture)...gives an overall tomato blast of flavours!
    Haha..romba overa iruka??
    My friend actually told me something like this when i first heard the recipe:)
