TOMATO,ONION KOTHSU SARAVANA BHAVAN STYLE


Side-dish-for-idli-dosa           Easy to make,but a yummy,tangy side dish that goes well with IdlI,dosa and rotis also! (Updated picture,I have used red chilli powder instead of green chillies)

Ingredients:

Red ripe tomatoes 3-4 nos. large
Onion 2 nos. medium
Green chillies Or replace with a tsp of red chilli powder for attractive colour ! 4-5 nos
Curry leaves 1 sprig
Coriander leaves For garnishing
salt as needed
Sugar 1/8 tsp
mustard For tempering 1tsp
Urad dal For tempering 1 tsp
oil For tempering 2 tsp
Idli-with-kothsu

Method:

  1. Chop onions and tomatoes finely and slit the green chillies into two.
  2. Heat a kadai/heavy bottomed vessel with oil and when oil is hot add the tempering items followed by curry leaves,green chillies and onion.
  3. Fry till onion becomes slightly pinkish / transparent.
    Add chopped tomatoes and required salt and keep sauteing,till it becomes  mushy.

  4. Fry in medium flame for 5-6 minutes and then add 1/4 cup water and bring to boil.Simmer for few minutes to form a thick gravy consistency.

  5. Transfer to serving bowl and enjoy with idly,dosa or rotis! Onion-tomato-kothsu
NOTE:
  • Always add less water.
  • Add a tsp of ghee while frying for enhanced taste.
  • Can use red chilli powder also instead od green chillies...for the ingredients given here..1 tsp red chilli powder will be approx. enough.
  • Colour purely depends on the colour of the tomatoes, so use red ripe tomatoes and chilli powder if you want to get the colour as it is there in the first two updated pictures.

  19. Hello, Idly and the gravy looks so amazing. I just tried to find out the receipe for Idly, can you post one. My mom is an amazing cook, but i live in Australia now and how much ever I try, Idly and dosa are coming out miserably. I am a crazy fan of Idly and its been more than 8 months since I had one. Looking forward for your post

  20. Hi, I am Vaneetha. The pictures of Idly and the gravy look so amazing. My mom is an amazing cook, but I am in Australia now and how much ever I try, Idly and dosa dont turn up well. I am not sure if its the quality of rice here or if I am doing something wrong. Can you post how you made such amazing idlis. Thanks.
