Photobucket

Yet times when i don't feel like going out to buy vegetables i resort making something jatpat as well as yummy.This curry goes very well with hot rotis and i learnt this from my m-law.

Ingredients:-

Onion 1 sliced
Green chillies 2 silted
Tomato 1 chopped
Ginger 1/2" pc
Besan/Chanaga pindi 5 tbsp
Lemon juice 2 tbsp

Seasoning:-
Rai 1/2 tsp
Red chillies 2
Curry leaves few

Photobucket
Method:-

Mix besan with little water and keep aside.
Head kadai,add all the seasoning and when curry leaves are fried add ginger,onions and green chillies.Fry for just 2 minutes (don't fry it completely).
Add tomatoes and fry just about done,be careful not to fry completely.Add 2 cups of water.
Bring into boil.Add besan into the boiling water and stir simultaneously.Cook for 3-4 minutes until semi liquid.
Just before serving add lemon juice and serve it with rotis.

This curry is going to participate in the Side dish for chapathi event by viki of elite foods

  19. hi ,
    i loved the curry ,there is only one thing that puzzled me why salt was not added,because the taste was there with chillies ,ginger and lime ,but i felt salt was missing ,when i did it and tasted,normally in south india salt is a must ,this may be rajasthani curry ,may be so ,no salt? is that it?
