Tomato kootu

This is another simple recipe we make in my mother in law's place. Here is the recipe.

Ingredients:-
  1. Tomato - 2 (chopped)
  2. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  3. Salt to taste
  4. Coconut - 2 tsp
  5. Green chillies - 2
  6. Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
For seasoning:-
  1. Oil - 2 tsp
  2. Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  3. Urad dhall - 1/4 tsp
  4. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
  5. Coriander leaves - few
First grind coconut+green chillies+cumin seeds into fine paste and keep it aside. Take a pan, put chopped tomatoes in it. Add turmeric powder, salt and required amount of water and let it cook for 7 mts. When tomatois 1/2 cooked, add the coconut paste to it and add little bit of water and let it cook for 5 to 7 mts. When the ingredients comes to required consistency, turn off the stove. Take a small pan, pre heat oil, add mustard seeds, when it splutters add urad dhall and asafoetida powder and pour it on top of kootu. Garnish it with coriander leaves.
