Onion-Tomato Curry

Serves: 4

Onion - 1 , sliced
Tomatoes - 4, cut into cubes
Coconut - 1/4 cup, grated
Garlic - 2 cloves
Ginger - 1/2 inch piece
Sambhar powder - 1 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves - 4-5 strands
Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp

1. Grind to a smooth paste the coconut, 1/2 of the onion, garlic, ginger, coriander leaves, sambhar powder and turmeric with 1/2 cup of water.
2. Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan and add the mustard seeds. Once the mustard seeds crackle, add the rest of the onion and cook while stirring until the onions turn brown.
3. Then add the paste and cook until the paste starts to leave oil in the sides of the pan - about 8-10 minutes depending on the thickness of the pan.
4. Then add the chopped tomatoes, salt and cook until the tomatoes are cooked and the ingredients blend.

Serve immediately as a side dish with rice.
