Sev aur Tamatar ki Sabzi

I always loved to cook recipes from other cuisines. Have learnt hundreds of new recipes from all the fellow foodbloggers in last one year. The other major source of new recipes for me, are my readers. I have been getting so many mails from my readers that almost daily I come up with a new dish for lunch/dinner. This recipe is from Aruna. I didn’t know her two months back, but these days we exchange 2-3 mails almost daily. She has sent many recipes to me and this one caught my immediate attention. When I tasted this, I simply loved it.

This is what she said about this dish, “In my ex office one collegue, who was a Rajasthani, used to get this subzi in his tiffin. He used to call me everytime when he got the same, even though he ate his lunch very late. This is a chatpata subzi and goes well with chappati or poori. As 1 tsp of chill pd is used jaggery is also used in good qty so that it is sweet and spicy”.

Read Garam Masala’s Sev Tameta here, I am not sure if both are same.

Tomatoes(big) 2
Mustard 1/2 tea spn
Cumin seeds(jeera) 1/2 tea spn
Chilli powder 1 tea spn
Turmeric a pinch
Curry leaves 3-4
Jaggery 1 tbl spn
Oil 1 tea spn

Cut the tomatoes into cubes (not very small). Heat oil and make add mustard, jeera. When they start popping, add curry leaves. Add the tomatoes, chilli powder and turmeric powder. Add 3/4 cup water and jaggery . Cook till the tomatoes become tender.
Add sev and serve immediately. (Just mix the sev at the time of serving else it will loose its crispiness).

Serves : 2
Preparation time : 15mins

    This looks outrageously good. Kind of a Rajasthani pasta and tomato sauce…

  • Revathi July 22, 2006, 1:42 pm

    Wow Shilpa this is a very new recipe..

  • Shilpa July 22, 2006, 3:56 pm

    Thanks Aruna.
    LG, Arjuna, I want to see ‘aayisrecipes’ as a recipe site something like ‘Bawarchi’. I don’t know if it can happen, but I am trying my best towards that goal. Thats the reason I post so much here :).
    Diane, Revathi, give it a try and I am sure you will like this dish :D.

    This “sev tomoto” is a very cool sabji… This was one of my favourite dishes to order when I was in Gujarat few years ago.

    I,ve tried the”SEV AUR TAMATER SABZI” very recent, It’s really fit for my kitchen and my husben’s test, as well he is an Indian. I love all the Indian kitchens, espessially Panjabi and South Indian dishes, like Samber-Vada, Chole-Bhature etc.

  • pelicano October 2, 2006, 6:50 am

    wow- i did not know this dish existed! there is much similarity between this and italian pasta/tomato dishes!

  • rakesh January 16, 2007, 12:56 pm

    cool thanks i think i can make it

  • priya July 3, 2007, 9:21 am

    can i have the recipe for sev please shilpa

    Shilpa: Priya, I mixed besan(gram flour) with salt, a pinch asafoetida and water to a dough. Use a chakli press or a a plastic paper with some holes and press directly in hot oil. Please let me know if this is not clear, I will make a separate post for it sometime.
