Basale-Dil leaves &Tomato Curry

Basale/Malabar leaves, Dil/Sabbassige soppy and tomato curry is a side dish and it goes well with almost all the main dishes. It is an easy dish and I have not used any dal here. Try and enjoy this easy, quick and simple curry.

I have used dil leaves, malabar leaves/basale as it known as in Kannada, green tomatoes and MTR Rasam powder.
MTR rasam/sambar powder really has the touch of Udipi taste and I do use it some time. We do prepare rasam powder or sambar powder fresh and use it for that particular curry/rasam. The aroma you get from fresh rasam powder is excellent and the sambar/rasam taste yummy.
Let us see how to prepare Rasam Powder :
All you need it Byadagi chilly (In Udupi and Malanadu normally will use only Byadagi chilly).
Coriander seeds 2 to 3 three tablespoons, 1/4 Teaspoon of methi/fenugrik seeds, 1/2 teaspoon of jeera/cumin seeds. Little curry leaves and ingh/asafoetida. If sambar powder use 1 teaspoon of channa dal or urid dal.
Take a pan, add a teaspoon of coconut oil. Fry byadagi chilly ( 5 to 6 ) and remove it from pan. Add methi seeds let it turn slightly brown, add coriander seeds and fry for 1 to 2 minutes. Add jeera and put off the fire. Add curry leaves and ing/asafoetida. Let it cool and then dry grind or grind it with coconut.
The above quantity is enough for 1 bowl curry/Sambar/Saru/rasam. ( 2 to 3 people).
