Tomato kurma recipe, Thakkali kuruma recipe, How to cook

thakkali-kurma-recipe
This tomato kurma or thakkali kurma is an unbelievable tasty kurma that can be made in a jiffy! It can make a perfect pair for soft dosa, idli, puri or chapathi. Full video and step by step pictures.
I always wanted to make this kind of kurma for long time. So when I heard this recipe from Raji, mom of Aj’s friend, I was very excited to try this one. I came to know Raji when Aj went for Amazing X science challenge competition. We have a similar wavelength in many thoughts and ideas. So got to go well with her and we keep in touch through phone calls. once she came to know about my food blog and when she explored the recipes, she started admiring it a lot heartily. Though she never agrees the fact that I am also like all of the house wives who cook everyday for their familyHappy.

Once when she told me that she is from Chettinad, I was so thrilled. Because I love the Cuisine. She was happy to share two simple recipes from her handwritten note recipe book from her mom. One amongst the two is this kurma. Even though she told this recipe as ‘Vengaya Kuzhambu’ I made it more like Thakkali/ Tomato kurma. I think my tomato ratio is more than she mentioned. Though I have not brought the same recipe she told, the taste was amazing! I kept appreciating the simplicity of the recipe and yet the whole house smelt so good of this kurma. This goes well with Idli/ dosa/ chapathi/ idiyappam.

Tomato - 2

Sambar powder - 3/4 - 1 tsp

Turmeric - 1/8 tsp

Salt - As needed


To grind

Coconut, grated - 1/4 cup

Green chillies - 5

Fennel - 1/2 tsp

Pottu kadalai/ Fried gram dal - 1 tbsp

  2. Heat a kadai with oil. Temper with cinnamon and cloves. Add finely chopped onion and fry till transparent.step 2 cook tomato kurma
  3. Add finely chopped tomatoes and little bit of salt. Fry until it becomes soft.step 3 cook tomato kurma
  4. Add sambar powder and turmeric. Mix well and fry for two more minutes. Add 1 & 1/2 cups of water, add more salt if needed and bring to boil. Add the ground paste and boil for 3-4 minutes. Adjust water consistency if it is too thick.step 4 cook tomato kurma

Notes

  • According to original recipe, the kurma has to come out more on whiter side. But I was happy with the orange look :)
  • Do not add more masalas like cinnamon or cloves or fennel than mentioned, otherwise the kurma tastes different.
  • Adjust the water quantity to get a kurma consistency.

Serve with idiyappam / Chapathi/ Idli / Dosa. Below is with idiyappam. Yumm!!

  11. more like adding thengai chutney to the kurma! Isn't it?

  12. Hema, we dont usually add fennel in thengai chutney! More over, a kurma will become a kurma only after we add a coconut based ground mixture to it!! Hope u get it?!
