Tomato Kurma Recipe #2 with step by step pictures

Idiyappam has turned out to be the favorite tiffin item at home . The kids love to have this anytime, be it breakfast or dinner.

With the idiyappam being the craze,it is only fair that I prepare something suitable to go with it. The Srilankan  Potato Sodhi is a good side for these soft idiyappam but sometimes, I prefer a slightly spicy / tangy side.

When we crave for such sides, I make kurma or similar dishes. I already have a tomato kurma here on the blog.Here is another one from  Sharmis Passions that  I tried a few months back.
