Tomato Kosthu

I came across this easy breezy delicious tomato kosthu at Raji's Raks Kitchen..I tried out yesterday this delicious tomato kosthu for our dinner and served this beautiful kosthu along with crispy dosas,both together turned out our dinner absolutely divine..This gravy truly goes for simple preparation, actually i do these sort of gravy but somehow this tomato kosthu is kinda different wat we prepare usually, anyhow i followed as Raji went for this delicious gravy and we loved it..Personally i felt this kosthu go prefectly even along with pooris,rotis and rice..Sending to Jayasri's Blogger's Marathon - Rak's Kitchen..

Hi Priya, Looks really Yummy!
We call this Gotsu or Gojju - It tastes great with Dosa and Pongal etc - Tomato and Eggplant are the favorites varieties of this dish

Now Serving said... Reply To This Comment

Come to think of it, perhaps this is a different dish because the Gotsu does not usually have any dal other than urad for seasoning -
