Tomato Kurma

My Mother-in-law makes Thakkali Kurma (Tomato Kurma) as a Kozhambu variety to mix with rice and eat. I like eating this with rice. But my husband and I love it as a side dish for Idli and Dosa. Try it in both ways and decide what you prefer :-) It is a very easy dish to make. Takes very little time.


Onion 1 Big, cut into slightly long slices
Tomoto 3, cut small pieces

To be ground to a paste
Coconut 4tbsp
Green chillies 2
Pottu Kadalai (fried gram dal) 4 tbsp
Ginger small piece
Garlic 4 cloves
Saunf 1/2 tsp
Poppy seeds 1/2 tsp
Cinnamon 1 inch piece
Clove 2
Cardamon 2
Star Anise 2
Bay leaf 1

Oil and Salt to taste

Method of Preparation

1. Make a paste of all the ingredients under the 'to be ground' with enough water

2. Heat oil in a pan and add the onion and saute

3. When the onion becomes slightly brown, add the tomatoes

4. Sauté till the tomato cooks

5. Add the ground paste, salt and required water and bring it to boil. Simmer till the masala is cooked through.
