A quick and easy accompaniment from the Karnataka repertoire, the Tomato Gojju is a spicy tomato curry with shades of tanginess and sweetness too.

The tomato is sautéed and flavoured with a traditional tempering, a little jaggery and a dash of rasam powder. This gives the Tomato Gojju multiple flavourful touches, making it an all-time favourite with anyone who tastes it.

It can be served with Idli, dosa, chapati, puris, pongal or rice.

We Gujarati''s make a similar dish called sev tameta nu shaak which is sweet and tangy but, this dish with the hint of sambhar masala is unique, the flavors just burst in your tongue.
