Tomato Curry For Appam (with coconut milk)

Tomato curry is a tasty side dish which can be served along with rice or with chapathi. Tomato curry with appam is also very popular combination.  As I have told you before, we usually make chapathi for dinner and hence I prepare different curries to go with it.  So few days back I made this simple tomato curry which was a tasty combination with chapathi.  I served it for next day lunch along with rice and that too was very tasty.  I have added coconut milk to this to increase the flavor and taste.  You can avoid adding coconut milk if you don’t like it.. I usually make this curry when I don’t have enough vegetables at home to make an elaborate subzi, dal to go with chapathi.  In that circumstance, this comes really easy, tasty and handy recipe.. Now take a look at the recipe..
