Tomato Thokku

Tomatoes are yummy indeed. One of my favorite!!! Its a very handy one as it can be a side dish to chapathis, puris, pongal, idlis , dosas anything, even with rice. You can store this and use it for a couple of days as well. My family loves this recipe prepared by my FIL.
Tomato - 12 (medium sized)
Mustard Seeds - 1/4 tbsp
Fenugreek Seeds - 1/2 tbsp
Red Chilli Powder - 3 tbsp
Asafoetida - 1/4 tbsp
Salt to taste
Gingelly Oil for cooking

Heat generous amount of oil in a kadai. Add fenugreek seeds and saute for a minute.
Add mustard seeds, once they splutter add asafoetida.
Now add the diced tomatoes and saute for 3-4 minutes on high flame.
Add red chilli powder and salt and stir well. Let it simmer for 15 - 20 minutes.
Once all the tomatoes are mashed and oil separates switch to a high flame and stir for 5 minutes.
Garnish with coriander leaves.

Bon Appetit!!
