Unripe Meets the Ripe One's

Colour of Tomatoes always attracts me. Here they meet the unripe one's for Click Natural.

Last Sunday i tasted this Green Tomato Dal in Anjappar Restaurant nearby. So it tempted me a lot to try so fast. here the recipe.


1. Chana Dal-1/4 cup
2. Green Tomatoes-4
3. Red chilli-3
4. Onion-1
5. Salt
6. Turmeric powder


Pressure Cook the Chana Dall for upto 4 whistles and keep it aside. now in a kadai, heat a spoon of oil, add mustard, curry leaves and dry red chilli's. on frying it, add sliced onions and fry well. now add the pieces of green tomatoes and fry, add salt and saute for a minute. now add the boiled chana dall and mix well. add a cup of water and let the green tomatoes to get cooked. add little salt and turmeric powder and mix well. after they are cooked, garnish it with corriander leaves and serve hot with rice.

The light tangy flavour of these unripe tomatoes certainly tasted well along with chana dall.
do give a try if you are looking for a change in taste.
