Tomato Gojju

It's been a long time since my last post here. Been very busy these days juggling with the daily household cores and my two naughty sons. With the cute naughty member added to our small family, life has been too busy and complete. Just to enjoy the early stages of my son who is just 5 months old, I hardly get any time to blog. I am yet to learn the new taste and needs of my cute little one. Been clicking photos but to post I give an excuse as BUSY! haha! Still! I will try my best to be regular in my posts here :)

Today's recipe is Tomato Gojju. This is very simple and tasty dish with a very few ingredients. It tastes delicious with chapati's and dosa's as a side dish. Now that tomatoes are cheap, you can go ahead and try this out asap.
