Home cooked vegetarian food - Tomato Fry

Here is another vegetarian dish that sometimes we prepare for our yoga retreats guests here in Langkawi.

Tomato Fry (serves 4 people)

10 medium sized tomatoes, washed and cut each tomato into 6 even wedge shaped pieces

2-3 cloves

1 tablespoon of mustard seeds

1 teaspoon of turmeric powder

1 cinnamon stick or half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder

30-40 curry leaves, washed and dried

3-4 dried chilies (break into smaller pieces, remove excess seeds)

Optional 2-3 small red or green chilies, halved and remove seeds, depends on the spiciness that you prefer

Salt and black pepper to taste

2 tablespoons of cooking oil

Heat the oil at medium heat.

Add the cloves for a few seconds to flavor the oil and then remove them. It can be unpleasant if we accidentally bite into the cloves when eating.

Add mustard seeds, curry leaves, dried chilies, small chilies (optional), turmeric powder, cinnamon stick, or ground cinnamon powder. When the spices start to be fragrant, add tomatoes and stir well. Put the stove on high heat (this is very important). Add salt and black pepper according to your taste. Stir well. When the tomatoes begin to soften (the skin starts to detach from the tomatoes) and the juice starts to release from the tomatoes, remove from heat and serve hot.

The cooking process is less than 5 minutes.

After remove from heat, the tomatoes will continue to release more juice.

It is very good to eat with rice or chapati.

It is quick, economical and very tasty.

Bon Appétit!

About Yoga

Know thyself. Everything is impermanent and selfless. There is no 'I'. There is no 'I am selfless'/'I am not selfless'. There is no 'I am hurt'/'I need to be healed from hurt'. Non-blind believing, non-blind following, non-blind practicing and non-blind propagating, but be open-minded to inquire the truth of everything. Be free. Be peaceful. Be happy.
