Tomato onion fry is a very simple dish that tastes great.It takes up a little extra time to prepare because the onions have to be caramelised slowly without burning it.The process is long but totally worth in the end.The sweet caramel taste of the onions and the tartness of the tomatoes simply creates a mouth watering dish.I also add a lot of curry leaves than required which gives a lovely aroma to the dish. One can make it luxurious by adding boiled eggs or fried potatoes or paneer.But i like to keep this one simple.They go very well with chapathis or bread.

This is my post on day 16 of RM 2.


Onions - 2 medium size,sliced thin

capsicum - 1 medium sice , sliced thin

tomato - 1 medium size,cut lengthwise

ginger - 1 tsp,chopped fine

garlic - 2 cloves,chopped fine

green chillies - 2-3 nos,slit

curry leaves - of 1 sprig

turmeric pdr - 1/4 tsp

red chilli pdr - 1 tsp

coriander leaves - a bunch,finely chopped

salt to taste


Heat some oil in a wide pan.Add ginger garlic,curry leaves and green chillies.Stir for a few seconds and then spread out the onions in the pan.Start to cook them on medium high and then turn down the heat to medium and it till they turn golden brown.Do not cover the pan.Add the green peppers and salt.Let them cook until the peppers become soft.Add turmeric pdr and red chilli pdr.Stir in the tomatoes and cook it on medium high heat.Check salt.Garnish with coriander leaves.Serve hot with rotis or breads.

Onions and peppers have such a great flavor, It's nice to eat them as a main dish, which I do not do often enough... Both are so healthy, too! Looks great!
