A Simple side dish for idly dosas,yet again….

                            I was waiting for my camera to be fixed,for past two days…But realized that it would take more time than I expected,so again I took my mobile to click stepwise pictures to make a post! So here comes a easy to make Tomato kosthu/Tomato kothsu we make ,which goes well with the first day batter Idly. This kosthu  is tangy so that it compliments well with the first day of idlies(which have a mild, not so tangy taste) made …

Tomatoes,medium sized 2  nos,chopped
Onions 2 nos.,finely chopped

Curry leaves A sprig
Turmeric(optional) A generous pinch
Coriander leaves To garnish
Sugar A generous pinch
Salt As needed
