Today I am sharing you all my mom's recipe with the tomatoes which is a tangy and flavorful kulambhu for Vegan Thursday.This kulambhu tastes good with steaming rice and it is slightly thicker one,little different from kurma.I personally prefer this one with the plain basmathi rice,now on to the recipe....................
|Onion(finely sliced )||2(medium size)|
|Garlic/poondu(thinly sliced||5 cloves|
|Chilly powder/milagai podi||1tsp|
|Coriander powder/dhania podi||2 tsp|
|Turmeric powder/manjal podi||1/8tsp|
|Coriander leaves(chopped)||as needed|
Grind to a fine paste
For the seasoning
|Star anise||2 petals|
Grind the given ingredients to grind to a fine paste with water and keep it aside.
Heat the pan with the oil,crackle the fennel seeds,then add the wholegaram masala.Add the curry leaves then saute the sliced onion,garlic and green chilly till transparent.
Once the onion becomes transparent add the chopped tomatoes with a pinch of salt,cook it till mushy.
Now add all the spice powder and fry it for a minute,add 1/2 cup of water.Let it boil till the raw smell disappears.
Add the ground paste to it and add 1/2 cup of water,cook it till it becomes thick.Finally add the chopped coriander leaves and mix it well.
Tomato Masala Kulambhu is ready.
Serve it with white rice.
- The kulambhu should be slightly in the thicker side not to be watery or thin.
- Use well ripe tomatoes to get a nice color and taste.
