Tomato Onion Curried Sauté
Tomatoes and Onions are great combination. I love this sauté with almost any dish. It tastes great with bread, chapathi, dosa, idly. You can just mix this with rice and it tastes really yum!! Today being Sunday, I was too lazy as usual to do anything. I made this sauté in the morn and we used it in different forms at different meals of the day. Morn, we had it with bread as a sandwich. In the noon, I mixed it with rice and we had it for our lunch along with some chips and now for dinner, I just diluted it with water, heated it little bit and its ready for my hot idlis. :-) This one dish served my day. :-) People at home cant really guess the secret as we use it in solid and diluted forms...
Tomato - 3 big chopped into small cubes
Onion - 2 medium sized chopped into small cubes
Ginger Garlic paste / grated - 1 tbps
Turmeric - A pinch
Red Chilli Powder - 1 tsps
Green chilli - 2
Salt - to taste
Mustard - 1 tsps
Oil - 2 tsps
Urad dhal - 1 tsps
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsps
Asafoetida - A pinch
Curry leaves - 7-8 leaves
Cilantro - to garnish
Heat oil in the pan, add mustard seeds. When it splutters, add urad dhal, cumin and asafoetida. When it turns golden brown, add ginger garlic paste and green chili. Fry for few seconds and add onion.
Fry onion till it becomes transparent. Add turmeric and red chilli powder. You could add garam masala if you need. But I don't really add that.
Now add tomatoes and keep frying till tomatoes are cooked well. Add salt and remove from heat when tomatoes are completely cooked.
Delicious all rounder dish is ready in jiffy!!!!
