  • wash the tomatoes and chop them finely.
  • Roast the fenugreek seeds in few drops of oil till it becomes golden brown, cool down and powder it. You can roast and powder more and store it in air tight container for future use.
  • Heat a heavy bottomed vessel with oil and temper with mustard seeds, asafoetida and curry leaves. (Note: I don't have curry leaves so I didn't add )
  • add the chopped tomatoes, red chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and salt.
  • close it with a lid and cook it for 10 - 15 mins in medium flame. Stir in between to avoid burning.

  • when the oil oozes out, switch off the flame.
