Tamatar Ka Korma

I am always in search of different style of cooking same vegetables to give them a twist so that we can have something different from our regular Punjabi style dishes. Recently I saw Chef Sanjeev Kapoor making this on a TV show and decided to give it a try. I have never made tomatoes in this style. It came out yum and I am definitely making it again 🙂

Tamatar ka Korma is an interesting and quick dish that can be prepared in a jiffy. It has unique flavor of some dry spices and coconut in gravy with tangy tomatoes. I served it for our weekend dinner with some special Kashmiri Taftan and Vinegar Onions. We love simple fulfilling meals like this at home 🙂
