Garma garam roti with Tamatar roast, a delicious combo

I prepare all the chapattis and then start eating. This makes the food to cool and would never get the taste and the feel I get when my mother prepares food. My mother prepares chapatti and serves it hot; this helps to enjoy the food. I thought why not to have a hot chapatti from now onwards.

I was searching for a good combination for roti(we call chapatti as roti in Maharashtra) and finally decided to prepare tamatar ki sabji ( tomato roast ). My recipe for the tamatar roast is very simple and can be better called as IT recipe for tomato roast.

I came home from Ernakulam, prepared the sabji and after it was cooked, started making chapattis in the chapatti maker. I did not wait for the others to be ready and started eating them hot. I am not able to express the taste, it was awesome. I decided to have the chapattis hot from now-onwards.

Recipe for 15 minutes-Tamatar roast (Tomato ki sabji)

1. Take some onion and cut them into small. Fry them in a pan.
2. After they are light brown, add red chilly powder, coriander powder, pepper, ginger powder, jeera powder and mix well.
3. Add some water and then cut the tomatoes into small pieces.
4. Put the tomato pieces in the pan, close the lid, and let it cook for 15-20 minutes.
5. Remove the lid, add salt and let the water evaporate leaving thick gravey.

See, it is that simple. I have decided to avoid potatoes from my recipe, as they are a source for gas problems in the stomach.

I will suggest all IT people to start preparing food in their kitchen to help their stomach live long. The food prepared in hotels is neither clean nor nutritive.

  5. The curry is pretty good!The chapathi si even wonderful!Yes, I did see online abt the falls that you mentioned and it looks fantastic!It almost is twice the size of Bushkill, I believe.Buskill essentially is more of a trek!When I come to Kerala, I can visit this place!

  10. Nice to see you back after a break. :) Nice roti and tomato roast :)

    Hey nice song too :)

  11. Your roast seems lacking presenatation ad garnishing, green chillies are missing, mustard seeds not seen, you should have taken a photo of dish served neatly, now its somewhat 'alipili' looking, I think u are only a starter. Wish to improve next time.

  12. Hey abilash, u r rocking yaa..delectable comb...
