Tomato Kurma

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.

    You know Sailu, I made the same curry day before yesterday. It really comes out so good. Only variation I made was used raw green tomatoes. And the ground masala same khus- khus, dry coconut or coconut, cashews or can also add almonds for rich flavor.
    I learned this dish from my Mom, felt happy to see the post on your blog.

    Thanks
