Cooking for others and feeling happy when they enjoy that food is the great feeling ever right ?? I'm so excited to participate in a cooking contest "Indian curry and gravy" hosted by @archanaskitchen .Thank you Archana for coming up with a simple yet interesting contest.So what's in my kitchen for the contest - Thakali(Tomato) kuruma.I chose this because it's the simplest gravy ever and will go as an accomplishment with anything and everything.Be it Idli,Dosai,Idiappam,Appam,Roti,pulav,Curdrice,Plain rice,Fried rice anything with this Kuruma will taste great.Even though we all want to make different fancy dishes by looking at recipes online,these simple recipes will help on the lazy or busy days.Best thing about this recipe is even beginners,bachelor's any one can make easily.So here is the recipe. Onion -2,Tomatoes-4,cinnamon,Jeera,Staranise- few,Oil and ghee - little,Sambar powder - 2 tbs,Salt to taste To bring- Handful of coconut,Fried dal(Pottukadalai) - Handful,Chillies-3,Fennel seeds-1 tbsp.(Grind everything to a fine paste adding little water to it) In a pan add little oil and ghee,once it is hot add cinnamon,jeera,Staranise then add onions fry till it's brown,now add tomatoes fry it well and now add salt and sambarpowder.Let it cool for 10 mts.Now add the paste to the onion tomatoes and add required water.Let it boil for fews mts.Once you get the kuruma consistency transfer it to a serving bowl and garnish with a tsp of ghee and coriander leaves.
