Tomato Tamarind Kuzhambu / curry


Tomatoes - 3 small / 2 big (Make a paste using the mixie)
Tamarind pulp - pulp taken from tamarind of the size of a small lemon
small onions - 15
Garlic - 10 cloves (each cut into 2 small pieces)
Red chilli Powder - 2 teaspoon
Corriander powder - 3 teaspoon
Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Salt - as needed

For seasoning:

Oil (2 or 3 tablespoon) mustard seeds, urad dal, fenugreek, hing / asafoetida (kayam), red chilli pieces, curry leaves


Chop tomatoes into small pieces and grind them to make a pulp. Add tamarind pulp, red chilli powder, corriander powder, turmeric powder and salt. Kee a frying pan on the stove and add oil. When the oil gets medium heat, add mustard seeds, urad dal, fenugreek, hing, small onions, garlic and curry leaves and saute till it gets golden brown. Then add tomato and other ingredients and bring it to a boil. It has to boil nicely to take away the raw smell of the tomato pulp.
