How to Make Tomato Thoran

  • Wash the tomatoes and dry them up. Chop tomatoes finely.
  • Take a handful and squeeze it with-in your palms to drain out excess water.
  • Chop shallots and chillies finely.
  • In a heavy bottomed non-stick pan, heat oil.
  • Add mustard seeds and allow to pop.
  • Add all the remaining ingredients, cover with a lid and low flame cook for about 15 mins.
  • On removing the lid you will see tomatoes leaving a lot of water.
  • Remove the lid, mix well, spread out evenly in the pan, cook for another 20 mins still on low flame, (this process helps in drying the extra water)
  • Now your tomato thoran is ready to be served with plain rice.
