RM#2 : Day 11 Thakkali Uruzhaikilangu Thirakkal (Tomato Potato Dish)

We normally make this for Rava idlis, kuzhi paniyaram etc. I like it very much. My mother makes this very often. She also includes brinjals. but since my husband does not like brinjals I avoid them. She is very specific about the shape the potato and the brinjals are cut for this dish. She says the shape of them also matters a lot. So here we go.

Tomato - 2 big
Potato - 1 big
Onion - 1 big
grated coconut - 2 tb.sp
red chilli powder - 11/2 t.sp
salt to taste

For the seasoning
Mustard seeds - 1 t.sp
Urad dal - 1 t.sp
Fennel Seeds (Sombu) - 1 t.sp
Curry leaves

Chop the onions. Peel the potatos and chop them little and long fine. They should not be cubes. Wash the tomatoes and chop them. Grind the tomatoes, coconut and red chilli powder together to a fine paste. Heat oil in a pressure pan. Add the items for seasoning and then add the onions. Once the onion becomes translucent add the chopped potatoes. Cook for about 1 or 2 min. Add the grinded mixture and keep stirring for about 2 to 3 min. Now close the pressure pan and let one whistle come. Then you can turn off the gas and let the pressure come out on its own. Serve it hot.

So I think it was very easy and tastes good too.

Dear Mahimaa, for your question about the cake it is coming soon. I was trying to schedule the posts yesterday but somehow it got posted. And so I removed it. By the way if someone knows how to schedule posts for the future, please do let me know. I have typed them and saved it in drafts. I will be not here in the last week of Nov. and so want the posts to be scheduled.

Let us check out what my other co-runners are cooking today.
