Passing on this recipe to sanghis

  • I would like to dedicate this dish to my 2 sons. Like any normal kids, they are also very picky eaters... when it comes to tomato part, they just pick it and keep aside. In this dish I have ground all the major ingredients, so there won't much fuss in feeding( as they cannot find much obstacle on their way), they can just dip and have it . They are happy and I am also happy.
    Tomato kurma tastes good when dipped with idli/dosas and even chapathis ... can also be had with any rice varieties... tastes good.
