This year life outside the blog world is pretty fast paced and is keeping me on my toes. Hence fewer blog updates. I know a number of you dear readers are hoping for more frequent blog posts. I do not like to be away from my blog and its readers. Believe me. I am trying to balance my offline and online activities without neglecting either of them. I really wish there were more than 24 hours in a day. 🙂 I hope to share more recipes in the coming months.
For today, I have for you a South Indian classic breakfast side dish, Tomato Kurma. Simply delectable with dosa. Judging by the ingredients, you would tell that the dish is going to be tasty but the preparation work would be a little daunting. But totally worth the effort for a weekend brunch or breakfast.
Tomato Kurma and Gun Powder with Dosa ~ Our weekend brunch
Heat oil in a heavy bottomed cooking vessel. Add cloves, cinnamon stick, bay leaf and curry leaves and allow to sizzle for a few seconds. Add the chopped onions and saute for 4 mts.
Add the ginger garlic paste and saute for 4 mts. Add turmeric powder, red chili powder and salt. Mix well.
Add chopped tomatoes and saute for 9-10 mts on low to medium flame with lid.
Add the ground paste along with a cup of water and bring to a boil. Reduce flame and simmer till the gravy thickens.
Turn off heat and serve warm with dosa.
You can add a few cashew nuts while grinding the coconut base for a richer flavor.
