Tameta Nu Shak | Tomato Curry My Mom Way

My mom was a working woman in her whole life and she had irregular hours of work sometimes she has morning shifts, sometimes evening but she make sure that we had hot and fresh food every day, so for morning shifts she woke up early , cook lunch for us and packed her with us and go to work and for evening shifts, she made dinner for us and took her and go. So when I see now people working and feeding families day old food, sometimes I wonder how my mom all this. Since I started working I also wonder because I also have to come home, cook diner , feed kids and clean up and then go to bed. So now my evening goes very fast and that's the reason for now I go for quick and easy but healthy dinner ideas. This shak as we Gujarati says, its very fast and delicious to go with hot rotis. I never made it since I came to US but one day I had lot of tomatoes in fridge and have to use it so made this and enjoy it to the core. For the tadka you have to put cloves in it so when you are eating it , make sure you take out or don't bite it, otherwise you ruin your palate.

Ingredients :

4 big red tomatoes cut in big chunks
1 white onion chopped
4-5 cloves
1 tsp. cumin - coriander powder
2 tsp. red chili powder or as per your taste
Salt as per taste
2 tsp. oil


Heat a pan, add oil in it. When its hot, add cloves in it and cook till its soaks oil and become little big and flavor the oil.
Then add onion and cook till its just soft.
Add chopped tomato, both powder and salt and 2-3 tbsp. water , cover and cook till tomatoes are cook.
Its not going to be runny sauce, just to dip the rotis in it and enjoy it.
Serve hot with hot rotis. Diner is done.

 I had with Sweet and spicy mango pickle and Radish kachumber.
