Tomato Chopps / Tomato Curry | Indian Curry Recipes

Tomato chops is a easy and delicious curry with a tangy-sweetness from tomatoes and a mild heat from the masala. It is perfect for rice and roti alike and also a creamy spread for breads. It was the one traditional curry made in my home and when we were kids we used to call this as chapeese (kiddie language transformation). This is a simple preparation which gets ready in under 30 mins.


Ingredients:
Tomato - 4 - cut into big pieces
Onion - 1/2 cup chopped
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Salt - to taste
Oil - 1 tbsp
Cilantro - to garnish
Make a paste:
Coriander seeds - 2 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 3/4 tsp
Garlic - 2 cloves
Red chilli - 3
Grated Coconut - 1 tbsp
Cloves - 3
Cinnamon - a small piece


Method:
Make a fine paste of the ingredients under 'Make a paste' adding water. Heat oil in a skillet and add  the mustard seeds. When the mustard seeds splutter add the chopped onions and fry until translucent, about 3-5 mins. Now add the tomatoes and fry until mushy. Add salt, turmeric powder and the ground paste and saute for 2 mins. Add 2-3 cups of water, mix well and allow it to boil in medium heat until the raw smell disappears and a nice aroma emanates, about 10-15 mins. Remove from heat, garnish with cilantro. Serve hot with rice or roti.

  23. தக்காளி சாப்ஸ் ரொம்ப அருமையாக இருக்கு கீர்த்தி...இதே மாதிரி எங்க பாட்டி செய்வாங்க...ரொம்ப பிடிக்கும் ஆனா...எனக்கு தான் அதே சுவையில் சமைக்க வரவே மாட்டுது...

    கண்டிப்பாக உங்க குறிப்பினை செய்து பார்த்து சொல்கிறேன்...அரைக்க கொடுத்துள்ள பொருட்களை வறுத்து அரைக்க வேண்டுமே...அல்லது அப்படியே அரைக்க வேண்டும்...ஏன் என்றால் தனியாவினை அப்படியே அரைத்தால் நல்லா இருக்குமா என்ற டவுட் தான்...

  27. Krithi regarding ur q'n about paneer with milk powder, mix 1cup of milk powder with 2cups of water, bring boil,add 1tbsp lemon juice,stir until it curdles..Pass this curdled milk in cheese cloth,strain the whey and wash the cheese with water..place a weight to rid of remaining water from the cheese..

    Hope i cleared ur doubt..else pls do let me know:)..
