Tomato Thokku

Tomatoes are as juicy as they are beautiful. This richly coloured fruit has so much flavour. An recipe with rich tomatoes that comes very handy on busy days is this. My mom used to make this for chappathi when we travel. We used to pack this in foil boxes and it just looks like restaurant packed food. It tastes even more tasty while eating with family in travel. 

I am very excited as I just booked my tickets to my sweet home. Going on a week's stay, my bro also on his college vacation so we are planning trips...!! The best part will be tasting my mom's food and our restaurant food. I am sure, I will gain at-least a kg when I am back. I am definitely gonna come back ranting about my weight gain and poor hubby has to keep hearing the same over and over again. :P :P Cant help Mr.K:)
