Quick and Simple Tomato Curry

Ingredients to make Quick and Simple Tomato Curry

  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes (about 3 medium juicy tomatoes)
  • ½ cup sliced or chopped onions
  • ½ cup green peas
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped or grated
  • 2 green chilies/jalapenos, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • ½ teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon Kitchen King Powder or Garam masala Powder
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoon oil/ghee (clarified butter)
  • coriander leaves or Cilantro for garnishing

How to make Quick and Simple Tomato Curry

  1. Chop tomatoes, onions and green chillies and keep aside. Finely chop or grate peeled garlic. If using fresh green peas, boil in some water until almost cooked. If using frozen, just wash and keep aside.
  2. Heat oil/ghee in a large kadai or saucepan. Once the oil is hot, add sliced onions, garlic and green chillies.
  3. Saute on medium heat for about 1 to 2 minutes, until the onions turn slightly soft and pink; stir in turmeric, chilli and Kitchen King Masala powders.
  4. Fry again for a few seconds and stir in green peas. Mix well.
  5. Add chopped tomatoes and salt to taste and give it a good stir. Cook on medium high for a few seconds until the tomatoes turn slightly soft.
  6. Add 1 to 2 cups of water (depending upon how thick or thin you want your gravy to be) and mix well.
  7. Taste and adjust seasonings. Bring to a boil and reduce heat; simmer, covered for about 5 minutes until the tomatoes are soft and peas are well cooked.
  8. After 5 minutes or when the tomatoes are cooked, remove from heat, garnish with fresh chopped coriander leaves and serve hot with any Indian flatbread like rotis, parathas, naan, puris etc. or even just a bowl of hot steaming bowl of rice!

My Tip:

If you do not have fresh tomatoes, you can use canned tomatoes too. Just cut them up before cooking. Adjust the amount of green chillies and spices according to your taste. Other vegetables you can add are green peppers/capsicum, cauliflower, potatoes etc.
