Thakkali Kozhumbu or Tomato gotsu is my Mother-in-Laws speciality dish. It goes well with Idli and dosa. My hubby is big fan, so i had to learn this to please him hehehe...This gravy was prepared by my MIL,and I clicked it!!!


4 Tomatoes
1 onion
1/2 cup grated coconut
4 green chillies
2 red chillies
1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1/4 tsp fennel seeds
1 cinnamon stick
2 cloves
1 pinch turmeric powder
salt to taste


Grind coconut, cinnamon, cloves, fennel seeds, g&g paste, green and red chillies to a fine paste. Chop tomatoes and use whipper button to grind them coarsely.

Heat oil in a pan and do the seasoning. Add onions and fry till translucent.

Add ground tomato and coconut paste with turmeric powder.
Add 2 cups of water. Let it boil for 10 mts.

The gravy will thicken. Remove from heat. Garnish with coriander leaves. serve hot with dosa or Idli!!!
