Today, I am sharing yet another Kerala recipe which goes well with chapathi, appam, dosa and roti – Thakkali curry / tomato curry. This is mainly found in small shops in Kerala. It makes use of very few ingredients, but it is very tasty. The only time consuming process is extraction of coconut milk. Other than that it makes use of ingredients onion, green chilly, tomatoes and dry powders, turmeric, chilly powder and coriander powder. Here I have made use of homemade coconut milk, but if you are making use of coconut milk powder, then you can make this curry easily. You can also try other side dish recipes like malai kofta, green peas masala, dal tadka, matar paneer, moong dal with potatoes and so on. Now over to the recipe..
|oil (coconut oil)||1 tablespoon|
|mustard seeds||1 teaspoon|
|turmeric powder||1/4 teaspoon|
|chilly powder||1 teaspoon|
|coriander powder||1 teaspoon|
|coconut milk||3/4 cup|
2. Then add sliced onions and saute it till they become brownish in colour.
3. Next stage, add all the dry powders, turmeric powder, chilly powder and coriander powder. Saute till the raw smell goes off.
4. Now add chopped tomatoes and saute till oil starts separating. Add little salt at this stage.
5. Now add 1/4 cup water, bring it to boil, simmer the stove, cover with a lid and leave it to cook for some time.
6. Finally, add coconut milk, mix it well, keeping the gas in sim, let it cook for another 2 – 3 more minutes. Turn off the stove.
7. Curry is ready to serve.
