  2. Tomatoes - 4

  9. Curry leaves – few
  10. Oil – 3-4 tbsp

  1. Heat oil in a pan and when it is warm add the mustard and the urad dhal.
  2.  when the crackling stops, add the onions and fry till they are lightly brown and add the tomatoes and cook till they are soft (cover the pan with a lid, it helps to cook the tomatoes fast).
  3. Add the masala powders and fry till the oil separates out from the masala. Little water (50– 75ml) can be added to the masala.

Tell me what you think

So, drop in a word if you have anything to say and thanks a lot for stopping by.
