I remembered my mom's recipe when i saw these green tomatoes in the grocery stores recently. An easy and delicious recipe to try. Hmmm... the taste was perfect!

  • Green Tomatoes - 3 chopped
  • Onion - 1 medium size finely chopped
  • Moong Dhal - 1/4 cup
  • Masoor Dhal - 1/4 cup
  • Green Chillies - 4 or 5
  • Curry Leaves - few
  • Coconut - 1/4 cup
  • Turmeric powder - a pinch
  • Salt - as required

For seasoning: Mustard seeds, urad dhal and oil.

How to make it:

Pressure cook moong dhal and masoor dhal with little turmeric powder. Heat oil in a pan, add onions and fry until golden brown. Now add the green tomatoes and green chillies and cook until tomatoes become soft. Add the cooked dhal, coconut, salt and curry leaves and cook for 2-3 minutes. Do the seasoning with mustard seeds and urad dhal. Serve hot. Goes well with rotis and parathas.
