    Iam looking for chapathi curries,i found this recipe,and its really nice.
    if i use regular tomatoes,should i take 5 no: medium size? if tomatoes are more does it gives sour taste.please help me.

    1. Mullai

      Blanch those 5 medium tomatoes and then make your curry. Sourness depends on what kind you use, ripe and juicy ones suits well for this recipe. Please use the search for blanching process, its been discussed under many recipes.

      Sleshar, You can blanch regular tomatoes and then puree. Canned tomatoes gives good colour and they are sweet and ripe, I've not added any food colour to my dish, those tomatoes turn the dish to dark orange. (Blanching —- wash and boil tomatoes in water for 4 to 5 minutes, remove from water and dip them in cold water, this would loosen the outer skin. Remove the skin and blend the tomatoes to make puree)

    Mullai di…it looks awesome!!!

    I am a punjabi and was looking for such a recipe 🙂 I would definitely try this on coming weekend.
    But I have one doubt…I tried a similar kind of dish earlier like peas cooked in tomato gravy (not this wonderful kinds of course with chole masala and cashews)but it did not turn out well because the peas were tasting sweet instead of tasting spicy. Would this happen for this recipe too?
    I used the frozen peas. please reply.

      Good to know that you are Punjabi, guess I got hold of the right person to comment on this recipe. Actually frozen peas are sweet, come in handy and less time consuming. Try cutting down a little honey and increase the spice level to suit your taste. Indian fresh peas takes little longer to cook and its always better to cook them separately and then add it to the gravy. I made mine with frozen green peas and you can choose whichever works for you. Try and let me know.
