Onion Tomato Curry

I have a special love for Onion Tomato Curry, for this is the first recipe that I learnt to cook 🙂 When I was working for an IT giant in India, I stayed with my  friends in an apartment close to work. That was when I learnt to cook! Thanks to my friends I turned into decent cook before marriage 😉

Onion Tomato Curry is a simple side dish that can prepared in a jiffy! Back home after a tiring day at office who would like to slog in the kitchen? That’s when simple dishes like this comes handy.

Onion tomato sabji (curry) goes very well with rice, dosa and (preferably with) roti… yum!
