Curried tomatoes

I am a big fan of cooking shows. When I was in Bangalore, I used to watch them for hours. I wrote down most of the recipes that I liked but never tried them myself. In one such program I had seen this recipe. When I saw the small cherry tomatoes in grocery stores here, I thought of trying this dish. This came out really good, so thought of posting it here.

1 and 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes
1 tbl spn cashew nuts
1 tbl spn badam
1 tbl spn pea nuts(ground nut)
1 tea spn ghee
a pinch turmeric
1 tea spn chili powder
1/2 tea spn garam masala
1/2 tea spn cumin seeds(jeera)
1/4 cup milk
2 tbl spns yogurt(curd)
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 tbl spn cream
2-3 strands coriander leaves

I did not add coconut milk, badam and cream when I prepared it here.

Roast badam, pea nuts and cashew nuts. Grind them into a smooth paste.
Heat ghee and add cumin seeds. When they start popping, add the paste and fry for 3-4mins.
Add turmeric, chili powder, garam masala, milk and mix well. Add yogurt(curd), salt, tomatoes and cook on a low flame for around 7-8mins. Add coconut milk, cream and cook for another 2-3mins. Garnish with coriander leaves.
Serve hot with chapathis.

Serves : 3-4
Preparation time : 20mins
