Tomato Bhaji

Usually tomatoes are used in other veggies or chicken , mutton to make a thick gravy or to enhance the taste of the dish.

But this vegetable which is made of tomatoes itself has a lovely taste and goes very well with rotis in the tiffin.

Just ensure that the tomatoes used are very firm and take care not to overcook them. The tomatoes in the sabji should retain their shape, or else it will taste like some gravy .


Ingredients :

6 to 7 ......................very firm red tomatoes

1tbsp.......................ginger (very finely chopped)
1 tsp...................chilly powder
1/2tsp....................mustard seeds
1/4 tsp...................asefoetida(hing)
1 1/2 tsp.................sugar
salt
oil






Method :

Wash and cut the tomatoes in cubes.
Heat oil and add mustard to it.
When mustard splutters add hing , chopped onion and ginger.
Saute till onions are soft .
Then add the cut tomatoes keeping 1/2 cup tomato cubes aside , chilly powder, sugar and salt.
Cook for 5 to 10 mintues till the tomatoes are well mixed with the gravy .
Then put remaining 1/2 cup tomato cubes and cook taking care that these  tomatoes are not overcooked .
Serve with rotis or puris.
