Tomato Gojju


Hey people!! Hope alls well at your end. Long time indeed...... :) My apologies for having disappeared without even informing. To all my readers who have been mailing and asking me if everything was alright.....Yes, things are great!! Thank you so much for asking :). Past couple of months have been eventful for us, out here. The update from my end is that, Naveen and I  are expecting a new addition to our family in a few months from now!!! :) While we were very happy and excited about entering the next phase of our life, the first few weeks were also a little hard for us to cope with. Terrible nausea and morning sickness had kept me away from the kitchen all this while.... I could not bear the smell of food, leave alone cooking and eating it :D. I only lived on fruits all this while :D Naveen even had to stop using his perfumes 'coz I couldn't bear the smell of it :). Glad that the whole phase is over and am slowly getting back to normal. Will keep updating you guys from time to time, with all the happenings at my end....

Another update is that, my parents will be joining us here in the first week of May!!! :) I am really looking forward to having them over..... You guys could expect some nice "amma- made" dishes and recipes here on Mane Adige, after they arrive!! :)

Will now head straight to today's recipe.... Its a simple side dish that takes very few ingredients and gets done really fast. This gojju tastes great with dosas and chapatis. Make it a little more watery and its perfect with rice as well.... 


4-5 Ripe tomatoes, medium sized

1 tsp Red Chili Powder + 3/4 tsp Methi powder OR 1-2 tsp Rasam Powder

1 tbsp Jaggery

4-5 Curry leaves

1/2 tsp Mustard seeds

1 - 1.5 tsp Oil

A generous pinch of hing

Salt as per taste

Chopped Cilantro for garnishing



  1. Wash and chop tomatoes finely; Keep aside.
  2. Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan; Temper with mustard seeds, curry leaves and hing.
  3. Add the chopped tomatoes and covered for a few minutes; You could add a few spoons of water if the mixture is too dry but usually, tomatoes give out moisture as they cook.
  4. Add salt, jaggery, rasam powder and mix well; Continue to cook until done;If you are using methi seeds, dry roast them for a minute and then powder them in a blender without adding any water.
  5. Add water to attain desired consistency and boil well; Once done, remove from stove and serve hot with rice /rotis/dosas etc.

Prep Time: About 20-25 mins;

Serves: 2-3 people;

First of all Congrats Ramya, Its very exciting indeed. I was like you as well, as much as I liked eating.. didn't like the smell of it at all.

Tomato gojju looks yum.. enjoy eating.. take care.

Lakshmi said...

Congratulations to both of you :) I had a great rejection towards the smell of rice so I had to eat it warm or cold when it did not smell ooh too many things like that.

Vani said...

That's great news, Ramya! Congratulations! Glad the nausea phase is over. Good that you have your folks coming. I don't know how I'd have managed without mine after the delivery! Enjoy the next few months to the fullest. After the baby is born, it's wonderful but in other ways.

congarts Ramaya ....thanks for the simple and delicious recipe ..
take care

nirupamasundar said...

Hearty congratulations Ramya, was wondering why she is conducting a chutney mela? now i understand, what is next? sweet and sour mela?
My small advice is enjoy your pregnancy as much as you can, my neonatology friend says that children of happier mothers are healthier.
A small addition to that gojju is that you can add fine ginger sticks to them along with green chillies. Take care
