Being Gujarati I wanted to post this recipe since very long time, but unfortunately it was skipping from my mind. Sev Tameta is a curry in which tomatoes are tempered with mustard seeds and ginger and served with sev. Sev is fine vermicelli made from deep-fried gram flour paste by Indians.
Preparation Time: 10 mins.
Cooking Time: 10 to 12 mins.
3 cups chopped tomatoes
1/2 tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
1/2 tsp asafoetida (hing)
1/2 tsp chopped ginger
1/2 tsp turmeric powder (haldi)
1 1/2 tsp coriander-cumin seeds (dhania-jeera) powder
1 tsp sugar
1 1/2 cups thick sev
2 tbsp oil
salt to taste
1.Heat the oil, add the cumin seeds, asafoetida and ginger and stir 30 seconds.
2.Add the tomatoes, turmeric powder, coriander-cumin seed powder, sugar and salt and simmer for a while.
3.Just before you wish to serve, add the sev and mix well.
4.Serve hot with chapatis.
1.Make this as close to serving time as possible.
