Tomato Subji/Chutney.

This isn't exactly a subji but more of a chutney. At home we are used to calling it tomato subji. Its very simple and can be prepared in a jiffy. I like the flavour of kalonji (black onion seeds) in it. I usually make it when I prepare a dry subji to serve with phulka/roti for lunch.  Here is the recipe:
Serves 2:


2 tomatoes, chopped
¼ tsp black onion seeds.
¼ tsp cumin seeds.
1 tsp oil.
¼ tsp red chili powder.
1 tsp coriander powder.
A pinch of turmeric powder.
1 tsp sugar.
Coriander leaves to garnish.


Microwave the chopped tomatoes with 2 tbsp of water for 2 minutes on a high. Heat a pan and add oil. When heated add the seeds such that they sizzle. Add the micro-waved tomatoes and stir. Add all the spices and stir well. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Add sugar. Stir well and cook for a minutes. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with phulkas.
