Happy Valentine's Day !!!

Quick tomato gravy / தக்காளி தொக்கு

I woke up late on one lazy morning and my hubby was hurrying up to work. I dont want to send him empty stomach (he hate cereals...) and quickly prepared this side dish for dosa. mmmm.... he was very happy and had one extra dosa! As usual very simple recipe.

Cooking oil - 2 tbs
Mustard seeds + urad dal - 1/2 tbs
Curry leaves - 5 nos
Onion - 1
Tomato - 1
Ginger - small piece
Fresh coconut - 5 tbs
Salt to taste

1. Grind onion, tomato, ginger together into a fine paste and keep aside.
2. In a pan heat 2 tbs oil, add mustard seeds + urad, curry leaves and grinded paste @ 30 sec interval. Saute the tomato paste at medium flame (to set down the green smell).
3. In the meantime grind the fresh coconut to a fine paste. add this to tomato paste and stir for 30 sec.
4. Add salt + one cup of water & stir well.
5. Close the pan with a lid and let the gravy cook for 10 mins in medium flame.
6. Sprinkle chopped cilantro (optional) n serve hot with dosa/idli/chappathi.
