Simple Tomato Curry

What I like the most about tomato curry is, it goes very well as a side dish with both rice and rotis. It's simple yet tasty.

Onions - 3
Tomatoes - 4
Green chilies - 3
ginger-garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
red chili powder - 2 tsp
coriander powder - 1 tsp
garam masala - 1/2 tsp
salt to taste
oil - 2 tbsp
curry leaves
fresh coriander

1. Take a pan and heat the oil.
2. Toss in chopped onions, slit green chilies, curry leaves.
3. When onions are tender, add ginger-garlic paste and fry till the rawness goes.
4. Add coriander powder, red chili powder, turmeric and little salt. Fry for a couple of minutes.
5. Add the chopped tomatoes, cover the pan with lid and reduce the flame to medium-low.
6. Check after 7-8 minutes. Stir well and add a little water only if needed.
7. Adjust salt per taste, add garam masala. Garnish with chopped fresh coriander.

Note:  For all egg-lovers, you can conveniently toss the boiled eggs in the curry a few minutes before turning off the curry, it gives extra yumm :)
