Tomato Masala Kurma

Actually my mom makes delicious tomato kurma with fresh juicy tomatoes along with coconut,poppyseeds and fennel seeds masala paste. But while going through a supplement, i was surprised to see a new version of masala kurma immediately i want to give a try to this gravy. Seriously this dish came out simply incredible and the masala paste this recipe goes for is something different from the usual one.Have you ever tried a masala paste with peanuts for making a tomato kurma. But this gravy goes for it, trust me adding peanuts to the masala paste makes the difference from the usual one.

This kurma tastes absolutely fabulous as gravy with rice or as side dish with dosas,idlies.This masala kurma is definitely something from watever we would have already tasted.I'll advice to use juicy tomatoes for making this kurma.This post goes  for the CC Challenge of the month.
