Spicy Tomato Curry (Thakkali Kulambu)

This tomato kulambu is very different from the one we usually do. It is very spicy and can be had with white rice or even with idli/dosa. The ground powder we use in this gives a good taste for this curry.


Tomato - 4 (cut to cubes)
Onion - 1 (sliced)
Garlic - 3 or 4 cloves
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Dhania/Corriander powder - 2 tsp
Mustard - 1/2 tsp
Fenugreek - 1/2 tsp
Tamarind - one small lemon size or 1 tsp paste
Salt - to taste
Oil - 2 tbsp

For ground powder:
Mustard - 1/2 tsp
Fenugreek - 1/2 tsp
Pepper - 1/2 tsp
Cumin - 1/2 tsp
Urad dal - 1 tsp
Chana dal/Bengal gram - 1 tsp


1) Heat a pan and dry roast all ingredients for making ground powder.

2) Roast until it turns golden brown in color. Then cool it  and make ground powder of it.

3) Now, heat a pan and add oil. Once it is hot, add mustard and fenugreek.

4) Once it start to splutter, add the onion and garlic. Saute it for about 2 minutes.

5) Then add the tomato, salt and turmeric powder to it.

6) Saute it until tomato gets cooked well. Now add the chilli powder and corriander powder.

7) Mix it well and then add the tamarind juice and the ground powder. 

8) Let it boil for about 5 to 7 minutes, until it gets thick.

Hot and spicy tomato curry is now ready to taste with plain rice or with idli/dosa.
