Tomato cucumber curry



Tomato cucumber curry

This is an easy curry for lunch.

Cut tomatoes and cucumber in to cubes, slit two green chilies. Put all of them together in a pan and add enough water to cook, add ¼ tea spoon of turmeric, and salt. Let it cook.

Take half a cup of coconut, small piece of garlic,1/4 tea spoon of cumin seeds. Grind this to a smooth paste by adding enough water.

Add this to the cooked vegetables. Mix well and add enough water to make a gravy. Heat very well in medium heat. When its about to boil take it off the stove. Heat oil in a different pan and add mustard seeds and a couple of red dry pepper and curry leaves too. Pour this on the curry. You can have it jut like this or you can add ¼ cup of yogurt, well beaten, in to this.

Hi Meera, great recipe I think your pictures look fantastic! They make your dish look delicious, I like cucumber in cooked dishes in the UK we tend to only eat it raw but it goes so well when cooked:)
