Tomato Kadhi(Parve)

Tangy, tasty and so simple to make, Tomato Kadhi goes really well with plain boiled rice. It’s also full of veggies, so it’s good for you too.


  • 12 tomatoes, large
  • 3 tbsp vegetable/ canola/ sunflower cooking oil
  • 2 green chillies slit lengthwise
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • 10 curry leaves
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • 3 cups mixed vegetables – cauliflower, carrot, green beans, baby okra
  • Fresh chopped coriander leaves to garnish


  • Cut the tomatoes into quarters and boil in 3 cups of water till soft. Mash well and strain through a soup sieve to make purée. Add enough water to this to get a thin soup consistency. Put back on the stove and bring to a boil.
  • While the tomato purée is boiling, heat the oil in a small pan on a medium flame. Add the mustard, fenugreek and cumin seeds, green chillies and curry leaves to the oil and fry till the spluttering stops.
  • Immediately add this mix to the tomato purée and mix well. Add the red chilli powder, salt and the mixed vegetables and stir. Simmer and cook till vegetables are done.
  • Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve with hot plain boiled rice.
