Tomato Curry

My Mom used to make this simple yet yummy ‘Tomato Curry’ as a side dish for rice.  Since we all like it so much, I make it very often.  It can be served as a ‘charu’ or ‘kulambu’ with other dry items for a satisfying meal!


Tomatoes – 5 sliced

Onion – 1 sliced

Water – 3 cups

Salt – to taste

Grated coconut – 1 cup

Green chillies – 4

Turmeric powder – 1 tsp

Chilly powder – 1/4 tsp

Jeera/ Cumin seeds – 1/4 tsp

Mustard seeds – 1 tsp

Dry red chillies – 3 broken, seeds removed

Curry leaves – 2 sprigs

Oil – 1 tbsp


Cook sliced tomatoes and onions along with salt and water, till they are soft and tender.  Grind grated coconut, green chillies, turmeric powder, chilly powder and cumin seeds to a fine paste, adding enough water.  Add this paste to the cooked tomatoes and onions.  Mix well and allow it to simmer for 3 minutes.  Heat oil in a small pan and splutter mustard seeds.  Add red chillies and curry leaves.  Pour this over the curry and mix well.  Serve tasty ‘Tomato Curry’ with steamed rice.  Enjoy!!!

I am sending ‘Tomato Curry’ to PJ for the event “Healing Foods – Tomato” which was started by Siri.
