Tomatoes are in season right now, it is very very cheap here. So i decided to use it and make so many recipes as possible. I made jams, juices and pickles. I also made some gravy dishes too. This is a simple kurma made using tomatoes and it is super easy to make and taste delicious with idiyappam, appam or any tiffin items.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
