Tomato kurma is one of South Indians' favourite side dish. Here goes my version of it:
Large onion - 1Tomato (Roma) - 4
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tspOil - 4 tbsp
Grated coconut - 1 cupKuskus - 1 tbsp
Roasted split channa (pottu kadalai) - 2 tspSalt
Curry leaves - one spring
Ginger - 1 small pieceGarlic - 3 pods
Green chillies - 2 (adjust according to your taste)Cinnamon - 1
Clove -1Fennel seeds - 1/4 tsp
Cilantro - 2 tsp
1. Chop onion and tomato finely. Grind the ingredients given under 'to grind' and keep separately. Also grind roasted split channa, coconut and kuskus and keep aside.
3. Add the ground mix (ginger, garlic, etc) and fry till the raw flavour has left. Then add tomatoes with salt and cook till the tomatoes are completely done. (Takes about 20 minutes).
5. Tomato kurma can be served with roti/idli/dosa.
