Tomato kuruma ( தக்காளி குருமா )


Thakkali (Tomato) Kuruma is very popular dish in Kongunadu, it is the best accompaniment for Idli n dosai in our place. My amma often cook this Kuruma for Idli, it taste yummy with hot soft n spongy idlies. I use to call this kuruma in the name of Manjal Kuruma, My amma cooks very yummy n Delicious traditional kongunadu food for us, She got special quality of good hands in cooking non-veg recipes especially i like kola urundai, Biryani, Sandhagai, Aama vadai n Aviyal the list goes on like this there is no end of my favourite amma's cooking food. Here, my Hubby also like this kuruma very much everytime while making Idli atleast one day for side i wont miss to cook it.



Ingredients:

1.Sliced onions - 1 big
2.Curry leaves - few
3.Chopped Coriander leaves - few
4.Canola Oil - 2 tbsp
5.Slitted Green Chillies - 3 no's
6.Salt - as required

For Grinding:

1.Grated Coconut - 1/2 cup
2.Roasted chana dhal - 5 tbsp
3.Saunf /Fennel Seeds - 1 tsp
4.Kus kus ( poppy seeds) - 1 tsp
5.Garlic bulbs - 4 nos
6.Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp

For Grinding :(separately)
1.Tomato - 5 large
(Finely grind the tomatoes in separate jar and keep it aside, Don't use sour taste tomatoes)


For Seasoning:

1.Cinnamon sticks  - 2 sticks
2.Cloves  - 4 nos
3.Cardamon - 3 nos

Method :

1.Heat oil in the pan, Season the spices to golden brown follow with curry leaves, Green chillies and Sliced Onions. Saute it well till the onion turns translucent.
2.Meanwhile, Grind the tomatoes to fine puree and grind the coconut n masalas to fine paste.
3.Now add the tomato puree into the pan, cook in medium flame for 5 mts . Then add the grounded coconut masala and required amount of salt to the kuruma.
4.Stir it well till all the ingredients mix together. Cook in medium flame and close the pan with the lid to cook for 10 mts or till the raw smell goes off.
5.Finally turn off the fire , add the chopped coriander leaves and close the lid.
6.Now the Yummy n Delicious Tomato kuruma is ready to serve with soft Idlies. You should try to have like this pour the kuruma on top of the hot idlies and leave it for 2 mts n then have it . Woooww!!!! there is no words to express that Yummy taste of the idli soaked in kuruma it taste very good.

[Note: The Consistency of the Tomato kuruma should be in semi - liquid state. You have to stirr it well often and cook in medium flame while it is boiling, cos of roasted chana it will burn at the bottom.]
