Tomato Kurma/ Thakkali Kurma

By February 26, 2014

Tomato kurma or Thakkali korma is very easy to make and doesn't require too many ingredients. When ever I am out of vegetable I always opt for this one. First reason its very tasty ,second its quick to make and gives you full satisfaction. Goes well with chapathi and poori. It taste good next day too. I sometime serve this with dosa & Idiyappam too.  This kurma is served in restaurants with poratta. They add more mint leaves to get a strong flavor.


1. In a pan add oil to this add cinnamon,cloves,bay leaf and saute for few sec. To this add onion saute them too. Then add ginger garlic paste and fry till the raw smells is gone. To this add tomatoes and let them get mushy and soft.

2. Then add turmeric powder,chilly powder,garam masla and salt. Stir for some time. Then in blender add sombhu/fennel seed,coconut,chillies and khus khus/poppy seed and grind them well. Add little water and make a fine paste. Add it to the gravy and let it thicken the tomato kurma.. Add half a glass of water and let it boil for few mins. To this add mint as garnish and switch it off when the oil pop up on gravy.

3. Serve it hot with dosa,chapathi,poori, idiyappam.
