Sev Tamatar Subzi recipe

One of the most popular and easy to prepare subzi is the Sev Tamatar Subzi. I usually make it when I have run out of vegetables. Sweet, spicy, tangy all rolled into one.

Ingredients :

3 large tomatoes

1 large onion

2 inch piece ginger

7 cloves of garlic

1 heaped tsp chilly powder

1/4 tsp Turmeric powder

1 tbsp Coriander powder

1 tsp Cumin powder

2 tsps grated jaggery


2 tbsps oil

1/2 tsp mustard

1/2 tsp Cumin seeds

Sev and coriander leaves to garnish.


Chop the tomatoes fine. Keep aside. Chop the onion and grated the ginger and garlic. Heat oil in a pan and drop in the mustard. After it splutters add the cumin seeds. Follow it with onion and the grated ginger and garlic. Add salt and roast till the onions tturn translucent. Drop in the tomatoes and roast till mushy. Add the coriander and cumin powder, jaggery, chilly and turmeric powders. Mix thoroughly and add half a glass of water. Bring to a boil and simmer for a couple of minutes. Serve hot garnished with Sev and coriander leaves.

Note: add the sev only when you are ready to serve the subzi as the sev tends to absorb all the moisture.
