Tomato Curd Curry/ gutti tomato kura

In this festive season let me share with you a variety of curry with Tomato and Curd.


Tomatoes - 1/4 kg
Curd - 1 cup
Khus Khus - 2 tbsp.
Grated Coconut - 1/2 cup
Besan Powder - 1 1/2 tbsp.
Green chillies - 2 to 3
Garlic Pods - 4 to 5
Red chilli powder
Garam Masala Powder

For Tadka:
Turmeric Pwd - 1 tsp
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
Split Black Gram (husked)/Minapappu - 1 tsp
Jeera - 1 tsp
Asafoetida - 1/4 tsp

1)Mix besan powder in water and make a thick paste. Mix this paste in curd and put it aside for 10 mins.
2)Put the tomatoes as it is(without chopping) in hot water and after few mins peel off the skin.
3)Make 4 slits on each blanched tomato.
4)Soak Khus khus for half an hour. Make it a paste along with grated coconut.
5) Now, add khus khus - coconut paste to curd and mix it well.
6)Take a pan and heat some oil for tadka.Add Dal and mustard seeds. When dal turns brown and mustard seeds splits, add jeera, turmeric,asafoetida, chopped garlic pods, green chillies.
7)Now add the curd paste and mix it. Leave it for a minute.
8)Add salt, red chilli powder, garam masala powder.
9)Put the lid and leave it for 2 mins.
10)Add the tomaotoes now. MIx it and put the lid.
11) After 5 mins add the chopped coriander and switch off the flame.

Serve hot with rice or roti.

This dish required very less oil and tomatoes looks as if they are stuffed with curd when served. If you wish to have the ginger flavor you can add ginger garlic paste instead of garlic pods.

Variation: You can avoid khus khus & coconut paste. Instead, grind 2 or 3 tomatoes and add that paste to curd.
