Tomato Vegetable!

I really don't know what to call for this dish. You can either call it tomato vegetable/Tomato sukka or tomato chutney. It goes very well with dosa's and appam's.


3 big tomatoes
1 big onion
1-2 green chillies
6 cloves of garlic
1/4 tsp turmeric pwd
1 tsp chilli powder
salt to taste

Fresh/Frozen grated coconut (Add later)

For seasoning:

1 tsp mustard
1 tsp urad dal
few curry leaves
1 tbs oil


Keep all the ingredients together in a vessel to cook with little water. When the tomato is cooked, add little fresh/frozen grated coconut and cook for 5 mins. Add the seasoning and mix well. Serve hot with Appam or dosa's!

I simply love appam's. This recipe is from one of my keralite friend. I just fell in love with these soft appams and i recreate them in my kitchen very often.


2 cups of rice
1 cup cooked rice
1/4 tsp dry yeast
1 tbs sugar
salt to taste
1 tin coconut milk.


Soak the rice for 3-4 hours. Grind the rice along with cooked rice and sugar. Let the consistency be little thicker than dosa batter. Mix dry yeast with little warm water. Mix it to the dosa batter. Keep this mixture to ferment overnight. Next morning add coconut milk and salt to taste. Mix nicely and keep aside for one hour. Make appam's using appam pan. Serve them with chutney of your choice. I normally make tomato vegetable (recipe to follow) to accompany these appams.
