Tomato Gojju

My mom is an expert in this, though we follow the same procedure in making the fresh powder
her gojju tastes amazing, wonder how she manages that.Here is the procedure....


For the powder:

1 tsp oil
3 tbsp Coriander seeds
3 tsp Urad dal
1 tsp Sesame seeds
1/4 tsp Black pepper
1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
8-10 Whole red chillies

For gojju:

3 Large Tomatoes, cubed
1 medium Onion, Sliced
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
Salt to taste
Pinch of turmeric
1 tsp Mustard seeds
1 tsp Cumin seeds
Few Curry leaves
A large pinch hing
2 tbsp Cilantro, finely chopped


Heat lil oil in a pan and roast coriander seeds till they change color and keep aside, in the same pan roast rest of the spices and keep aside.
Grind to a coarse powder.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds, when they start crackling add cumin seeds, hing and curry leaves.Add the chopped garlic.
When garlic changes color add onions and fry till onions are soft.Add tomatoes and cook till tomatoes are completely cooked.
Add salt,turmeric powder and the gojju powder and mix well.
Cook for a couple of minutes and remove.
Garnish with cilantro and serve hot.
