I was long overdue to the grocery store, so all that I had left at home was onion and tomatoes.
So I decided to make this thokku.
The Thokku can be made and stored off up to a week.It goes great with rice and Idly/Dosa.Ingredients:
2 no Tomato
3 no red Onion
10 pods Garlic
1 tbsp G/G Paste (Ginger/Garlic)
1 tbsp red Chilly powder
1 sprig Curry leaves
4 tsp Oil
1 tsp Mustard seeds
1 tsp Urad dal
1 tsp Fennel seeds
Salt to taste.
Fine slice the onion, chop the tomatoes.
Heat the oil in a kadai. Add mustard seeds and urad dal when the oil is hot.
When the mustard seeds splutter, add the fennel seeds, curry leaves and onion.
Add the garlic to the onion and saute till the onion turns color.
Now add the G/G paste and the tomato and saute.
Add the red chilly powder, salt and saute till the onion and garlic is thoroughly cooked,adding little oil if necessary.
Turn of the heat once done.Allow it to cool completely and store in a clean dry container.
