Easy Peasy Tomato Curry - Best Combo for Dosa, Poori, Chapati

Pardon me for not posting these many days. My friends started to ask me whether I have quit from blogging, How would I NEVER,EVER.

Why I didn post these many days?

My camera got broked. I am taking pictures using my hubby's samsung s3 mobile, While I start to cook, hubby leaves home to visit his friends. He will be back only after I finish cooking. So I am finding it difficult to take pictures.Sorry guys, I will soon get back to normal.

Today's recipe is going to a super easy curry which reminds me of my home. Amma makes this often in our house and serve it with dosa, idly or poori. I made this curry thinking of amma. I miss my home so badly. Ok enough woriies..Here you go to the recipe..


Onion - 2 large sliced thinly
Tomatoes - 4 chopped finely
Chilli powder - 2 tsp or to taste
Coriander powder / Malli podi - 1 tblspn
Garam masala powder - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Sugar - 1 tsp (optional)
Oil- 2 tblspn
Coriander leaves / Cilantro for garnishing


Heat oil in a pan. Add onions in and fry them. You can add some salt at this point. Fry the onions till they turn golden brown.

Now add in chilli, coriander and garam masala powder and mix well.

Now add in tomatoes and cook till they turn mushy. It will take around 10 mins.

Now pour over some water and simmer for 5 mins.

Garnish with coriander leaves and mix well.

Serve with dosa or poori or anything as you like..


I forgot to take the ingrediants pictures..OOPS!!

You need very basic ingrediants like Onions,Tomatoes, Chilli powder, Coriander powder, Garam Masala Powder, Salt, Oil and some Coriander leaves...Shall me move on to the next step...

Start by frying some onions in oil
Fry till they turn translucent
add in chilli, coriander and garam masala powder
saute for 30 sec
add in tomatoes
and mix well
cook till oil separates from it
add some salt
and some water
bring everything to a boil and simmer it for few minutes
garnish with coriander leaves.

Excellent recipe..I completely understand how you feel and am sure your missing your mom..A small suggestion just be careful.I know you don't like when he's leaving you alone and going out with hisfriends.Just relax this is going to be a habit forever.Coz guys dont change they need their friends.Dont argue just treat him with respect and just be involved with your hobbies.

remember the sayings of La. Sa. Ra [Lalgudi Saptarishi Ramamrutham] , a tamil writer, when i read your post on Ma.

he said something like "there is only a SINGLE Mom in the whole world. whenever anyone says mom, we always think OUR OWN MOM"

second, i remeber the dialogue in Dil Se(1992) on the most beautiful thing in the whole world is the PALM OF MY MOM.

thanks dear for mixing a bit of feelings in your post. we should feel human to get MOVED/TOUCHED. your posting is just that. it's not JUST A RECIPE.. it's love!

have a long life dear
