Simply Red - Tomato Curry


This recipe is from Dad - my father in law. He is truly a foodie. He enjoys not only eating good food, but also cooking. What I like best about his cooking is the use of minimal ingredients and is big on flavor. Thanks to him, I have learnt some Mangalorean recipes and manage to surprise K once in a while :)
Ripe, juicy tomatoes, a few curry leaves, browned onions and green chillies - they all come together in this immensely satisfying and comforting curry. RP of the wonderful My Workshop is hosting the JFI for this month which is tomatoes. This is my contribution for this fun event.

Lunch today : Garlic Naan, Baked Potato, Tomato Curry

8 large tomatoes, slice into 8 pieces each and remove the skin
2 medium onions sliced and brown in oil
3-4 green chillies, sliced
6-7 curry leaves
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
Salt to taste
Oil

Heat oil in a pan and fry the onions till brown. Add the curry leaves and sliced green chillies. Cook for a minute, then add the sliced tomatoes, chilli powder, turmeric powder, salt. Mix well, cover and let cook till the tomotoes begin to break down. Add one cup water and cook for about 10 minutes, or until the tomatoes are cooked and the gravy is thick. Serve hot with Roti /Paratha. Enjoy !!

A good one. My favorite recipe. It reminded me the long train journeys we used to have. We used to carry rotis and this curry since it remained fresh even the next day.
