How to prepare Onion Tomato Sabzi/  Pyaaz Tamatar ki Sabzi ?

  1. Heat oil in a kadhai/ pan.
  2. Add mustard seeds and let them splutter.
  3. Now add cumin seeds and let them splutter.
  4. Add curry leaves and sauté for 4-5 seconds.
  5. Add the chopped onion and sauté till it turns light brown in colour. Note: Cooking onions properly is very important so that they do not taste raw while eating the subzi.
  6. Once the onions are cooked well and light brown in colour add the chopped tomatoes. Note: We need to cook the tomatoes till they are mushy. This will take around 8-10 minutes. You may cover the subzi and cook for 4-5 minutes and then cook without the lid so that the water content in the subzi reduces.
  7. Add the salt and sugar to the tomatoes while they are getting cooked. Tip: You may also add some roasted ground peanuts to the sabzi for a different taste.
  8. Once the tomatoes are well cooked and mushy, garnish the subzi with chopped coriander leaves.

Serve with chapatis, phulkas or roti.
