Tomato Gothsu(Gojju)

It can replace a routine of breakfast or Indian Bread sidedishes for a change or variety. Simple yet a delicious and mild accompaniment to Indian Breads.This is done by the Keralites (as I came to know abt this dish  from my Malayali Friend last year). Needs 20 mins cooking time for its arrival at the Dinning table.
This serves 4 nos.Enjoy cooking at home.Enjoy ur meal.Bon Appetit!.

Tomato Gosthu(Gojju) - Tomato-Onion Dhal Curry.


3 medium-sized Tomatoes - chopped
15 small sambar onions -  peeled and cut into 2
3 green chillies  - slit lengthwise (Or U can add 2 greenchillies and 1/4 tsp chilli powder)
50 -70 gm yellow moongdal - pressure-cooked upto 3 whistles with turmeric powder and salt
1/2 tsp ginger and garlic paste
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp jaggery - crushed or Sugar
3/4 tsp Salt or as needed
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
a sprig of Curry leaves
2 tsp gingely oil
1/2 or 1 tsp coconut Oil
1 tbsp coriander leaves - garnishing
1 tsp ghee


1.Heat  refined oil in a kadai and splutter with mustard seeds,cumin seeds,small onions,curry leaves and green chillies and saute it for a  min or two.
2.Add ginger-garlic paste and saute for a min.Add chopped tomatoes and turmeric powder and stir-cook till tomatoes melt.
3.Add pressure-cooked moongdal,1 tsp or 1/2 coconut oil,salt and simmer it for 5 more mins.Add Jaggery and mix it well.
4.Sprinkle 1 tsp ghee(optional) and mix well.Garnish  with chopped coriander leaves on top and serve with dosa or idli.


Don't add boiled moong dal more than 1/2 or  3/4 electric rice cooker cup.This will spoil the taste of the dish.
