Tomato Eriseri

This is a recipe I learned from one of my friend's mom here. I like it very much. Here is the recipe.

  1. Green tomato - 2 cup (chop it into small cubes)
  2. Toor dhall - 1/2 cup
  3. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  4. Salt to taste
  5. Coriander seeds - 1 tbsp
  6. channa dhall - 1 tsp
  7. Urad dhall - 2 tsp
  8. Red chillies - 2

First cook the toor dhall adding a pinch of turmeric powder and keep it aside. In the mean time, fry, coriander seeds, channa dhall, urad dhall and red chillies to golden brown and let it cool and grind it into a fine paste. In the mean time, cook the green tomatoes to 3/4th, in a wide pan, adding salt and turmeric powder. When it is 3/4th done, add the grounded paste and cooked toor dhall and mix it well and let it cook for another 5 mts. Add water to adjust the consistency. Recipe may sound similar to Sambar. But here we are not using tamarind. If we want we can also add coconut while grinding the paste. In that case, reduce the amount of urad dhall accordingly.
