Tomato mirrium

I learnt this recipe from my mom.  To me there is nothing more comforting then making and eating my mom's recipe's.  I promise this recipe can be done in less than 15min if the tomatoes and garlic  are chopped and kept ready. 


4 big ripen tomatoes 
5 to 6 flakes of garlic
curry leaves
Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
chilli powder 1 tbsp
corriander powder 2tbsp (add chilli powder and corriander powder according to ur taste)

For seasoning:

Mustard seeds 1tsp
Urad dal 1tsp
Jeera 1tsp
Oil 4 to 5 tbsp (i used sesame oil)


Chop the tomatoes and garlic and grind in the mixer like a smooth paste and keep it aside.  Now add the oil in a pan, after it gets heated add mustard seeds, let it splutter, add urad dal, jeera, curry leaves and add the smooth paste in to the pan, now add the turmeric, chilli powder, corriander powder and salt to taste.  Stir well in a medium flame until it gets the right consistency.  Switch off the flame and serve with idly, dosa, goes with plain rice too.

I hope you will enjoy this recipe and let me know how it turned for you.
