TOMATO THOKKU (VERSION 1)



INGREDIENTS:

Big tomatoes - 10
Green chillies - 2 or 3
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Salt

To temper:

Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp.
Urad dhal - 1/2 tsp.
Gram dhal - 1/2 tsp.
Hing
Curry leaves - few
Gingelly oil - 1 ladle

METHOD:

Grind tomatoes and chillies to a fine paste without adding water.

In a heavy-bottomed pan, heat gingelly oil, add mustard seeds and allow it to splutter. Now add urad dal, gram dal, hing, turmeric powder and curry leaves and fry till golden brown. Add the ground paste and salt as per requirement. Stir often so that the paste doesn't stick to the pan.

When oil leaves the sides and thick transfer it to a bowl. Allow it to cool. Store in a sterile bottle. This can be used as a side dish for idli, dosa, chappati, poori , curd rice and can also be mixed with cooked rice.
