This is amma’s recipe and it used to be a favourite amongst all at home. It goes the best with hot idlis and dosas.
Ripe tomatoes-5 -6
Mustard seeds-1 tea spoon
Fenugreek seeds-1 tea spoon
Turmeric powder-1-2 tea spoon
Red chilli powder-1-1 1/2 table spoon ( I made it real spicy, but the measurement totally depends on the taste buds)
Tamarind paste-2 tea spoon
1.Finely chop the tomatoes.Set aside.
2.Heat a table spoon of oil in a cooking pan,splutter mustard seeds and fenugreek seeds and throw in the chopped tomatoes.Cover with a lid and cook for a few minutes until the tomatoes become pulpy and mushy.
3.Add turmeric powder, red chilli powder and tamarind paste, mix well and continue to cover and cook on a low-medium flame.
4.Check the consistency every5 -7 minutes and whenever the tomatoes mix was getting dry, add a little oil and mix well.Its better to add salt in the end as the mix would thicken in a period of time and adding salt in the beginning could ruin the taste
5.Add salt when the mix thickens to form a semi gravy consistency .Remove from stove and set aside to cool.Once cool, store in a air tight container.Lavish usage of oil helps retaining the mixture for a couple of days atleast.
