Tomato Bath
Source : Shama K. Pullabhotla

  • 2 cups Suji (Bombay Rava)
  • 3 ripe tomatoes
  • One big onion
  • Few green chillies
  • One potato
  • A small piece of ginger
  • Few curry leaves
  • Coriander (Cilantro)
  • Seasoning ingredients (Few mustard seeds, cumin seeds, split chana dal, urad dal, curry leaves and 2-3 red chillies)
  • 1-2 Tblsps of oil
  • Salt as required
Chop onion, ginger and green chillies into small pieces. Peel and cut the potato into small pieces. Chop the tomatoes.

Keep a deep non stick vessel on low flame and add 1 Tblsp oil to it. When the oil is warm, add all the above mentioned seasoning ingredients to it.

Once the mustard seeds start spluttering, add chopped onions, ginger and green chillies to the vessel.

When the onions turn golden brown in color, add potatoes to the mixture and fry the mixture stirring it frequently.

When the potatoes become tender, add chopped tomatoes to the mixture and fry the mixture further till the tomatoes are well done.

Add chopped coriander to the mixture and fry it till the coriander loses it color.

Add water to the mixture in 1:2 proportion, (i.e. for one cup of suji put two cups of water. In fact, you can add slightly more water for a more liquid consistency)

Add salt as required

Meanwhile, add suji to another frying pan and fry it dry on a low flame till the suji turns a little golden brown but take care not to burn it. Once the water added to the mixture begins to boil, add the fried suji to the mixture by stirring the mixture well avoiding the formation of any lumps.

Just before turning the flame off, add one more tblsp of oil to the dish and stir it well. The dish is done
