Only those who have patience to do simple things perfectly will acquire the skill to do difficult things easily – Friedrich Von Schiller
It’s amazing how, at times, doing the simplest of the things well can salvage a bad day. One such story of mine happens to be associated with this healthy, tasty and simple recipe. Hoping it do the same for someone else too and sharing it here on my blog.
Tomato(chopped) – 3 medium size
Spring Onion(chopped) – 2 bunches
Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds – 1/2 tsp
Urad dal – 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves – a few
Onion chopped – 1/2 cup
Turmeric powder – a pinch
Hing – a pinch
Red chilli powder – 1 tbsp ( you can reduce the quantity if you don’t like it spicy)
Garam masala powder – a pinch
Salt – to taste
Oil – for tadka
Fresh Coriander/Cilantro(finely chopped) – for garnishing
In a deep pan heat oil and add mustard seeds, cumin seeds and urad dal. When the seeds splutter add a pinch of hing, curry leaves, onion.
Saute the onions till they turn translucent add turmeric powder, garam masala, red chilli powder and salt
Now add the tomato to the mixture
After the tomatoes are slightly done, add the chopped spring onion. Cover it for about 8-10 mins and let it cook.
Add a little bit of water(about 2 tbsp) and let it cook for a minute. Now take it out in a serving bowl, garnish with fresh coriander and serve hot with any Indian bread or rice. This dish is usually prepared spicy but you can reduce the quantity of chilli powder if you don’t want it spicy.
Hope you enjoy making it and eating it! 🙂
