Thakkali/Tomato Kulambu

Bored of  usual Sambar,Rasam n Dals...thought of trying something new n different...and finally searching thru Raks..landed on a very different Tomato Curry(a tamil style)..Do try !!!

Tomato - 4 (big)
Shallots - 10 ( i used onion - 1 medium)
Green Chillies - 10 ( i used 4..adjust to Your spice level)
Coconut - 1/2 coconut (grated)
Sambar Powder - 2.5 tsp
Oil - 3 tbsp
Mustard seeds- 1 tsp
Curry Leaves - a few

Method :-
  1. Boil tomatoes in water for 5-7 min..drain and remove skin.Keep the flesh in a bowl and once it cools..mash it using your hands.
  2. Grate coconut and grind it with 1/4cup water and squeeze using a metal strainer the first milk(thick milk).Put this strianed coconut again into the grinder and blend it using 1/4cup lukewarm water..and extract second milk(thin milk).
  3. Keep both the extracted milks separately.
  4. Heat oil in a pan and crackle mustard seeds ,then add curry leaves,green chilles and chopped onion.Saute till golden.
  5. Add the thin milk,1 & 1/4cup water,mashed tomatoes,sambar powder .Boil for 6-7 min.
  6. Atlast add thick milk and salt.Boil again till oil separates and floats on top.
Tangy..Yummy Thakkali Kulambu ready to be served with Hot Rice....Njoy!!!
