Tomato Curry with Coconut Masala

This is a simple tomato curry dressed up with flavorful and yummy masala to make it more palatable. It not only smells great but also tastes great!!


  • 4 cups diced Tomato
  • ¼ cup dry Coconut Powder
  • A pinch of Turmeric Powder
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • ½ tsp Mustard Seeds
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • Few Curry leaves
  • A small piece of Ginger, peeled
  • 1 or 2 cloves of Garlic
  • 8 to 10 red chilies
  • A handful of Cilantro


Add coconut + garlic + ginger + red chilies + cumin seeds + lemon juice to a blender jar and grind into a fine paste. Keep aside.

Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When they pop, add tomatoes and sauté well.

Add curry leaves + turmeric and mix well. Cover and leave the pan for some time until tomatoes become soft.

Then add the ground coconut masala to the curry and mix well. Add salt as required and allow the curry to cook for some time on a low flame.

When all the water from the tomatoes gets absorbed and the curry becomes thick, turn off the flame and add chopped cilantro.

Mix well and transfer the curry to a serving bowl. Enjoy this yummy curry with rice or chapathis.
