Tomato Kosthu

 It is an easy, but tasty combination for Idli or Dosai. I like it very much when my mom makes it with lots & lots of small onions.              
Small Onions---------------------> 2 cups Chopped
Tomato----------------------------> 4 Chopped
Carrot-----------------------------> 1 chopped fine (Optional)
Potato-----------------------------> 1 chopped fine (Optional)
Green Chillies--------------------> 2 Chopped fine
Salt--------------------------------> A2Y taste
Turmeric Powder----------------> ½ tsp
Sambhar Powder----------------> 1 tsp
Cilantro----------------------------> ½ cup chopped
·         Do the seasoning with Mustard Seeds in a Sauce Pan. My mom puts 1 tsp of Channa dal also in the seasoning. But I skip it.                
·         Add the onions, Tomatoes, Chillies, turmeric and fry until the onions are translucent.                      
·         Put in rest of the vegetables and saute for couple of minutes                       
·         Add 2 cups of water, Sambhar Powder and Salt                      
·         Once it starts boiling, close with the lid                      
·         Simmer it until the vegetables are cooked                 
·         Garnish with Cilantro
