For friends who have shared my lunchbox, this is a very familiar superhit sabzi ... fast to cook, so delicious to eat that leaving a drop of this delicious tomato gravy back in the lunchbox makes you feel like you're wasting food ... serve it hot with chapatis or bhakri or packed as a lunchbox sabzi, its a delicacy both ways ...


In a non stick pan, heat 1 tablespoon of oil, when its hot, add 5-6 garlic cloves cut in small pieces, 1 green chilli cut in small pieces, 1 teaspoon jeera, pinch of hing

Cut 5 tomatoes in slightly big cubes, add to the vaghaar, reduce flame to less than medium

Add little less than 2 teaspoons salt (to taste), 1/8 teaspoon haldi, 3 teaspoons red chilli powder, 2 teaspoons dhaanajeeru, 2 tablespoons jaggery

Let tomatoes cook in this own juices. After 3-4 minutes, they will soften & start looking mushy.

Switch off flame. Add 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup slightly thick Sev just enough to slightly soak up the tomato juices.

Garnish with fresh cut cilantro.

Serve hot with chapatis or bhakri. If you add little water & make more gravy, this sabzi mixed with plain khichdi also tastes delicious (in this case make sabzi more spicy by adding more of red chilli & green chilli pieces)

Prepare & enjoy !!!
