*Sev - Tomato sabji

Sev - Tomato sabji

Here comes another recipe....

There are times you don't feel like cooking or want to make something very quick and with less efforts or you don't have vegetables at home,here is one of the simplest and tasty sabji you can make in no time.........Sev-tomato sabji.This is basically a Rajasthani dish and mostly prepared by gujaratis and marwadis.

This recipe takes me back to my hostel days.We had Rajasthani cooks in our hostel mess.Sometimes we used to get late for the dinner and the sabji used to get over.In such situation they used to make this sev-tomato sabji as it can be cooked in no time and believe me it used to be so yummy,out of this world!!!!!! I can never forget that taste.It was one of the very few tasty recipes they used to make, he...he :D. The tangy taste of tomatoes and the light sweetness of jaggery mixed together gives this recipe a wonderful flavour.


  • Tomatoes(big) 2
  • Mustard seeds 1 tsp
  • Cumin seeds(jeera) 1 tsp
  • Chilli powder 1 tsp
  • Turmeric 1 tsp
  • Curry leaves 3-4
  • Jaggery 2 tsp
  • Asafoetida(hing) a pinch
  • Oil 1 tsp
  • Sev
  • Salt to taste
  • Cilantro for garnishing
  • Cut the tomatoes into small pieces

  • Heat oil and add mustard seeds and cumin seeds.When they start to splutter,add hing and curry leaves.

  • Add the tomato pieces, chilli powder,turmeric powder,dhania-jeera powder(corrainder seeds and cumin seeds)and salt as per taste.

  • Add 3/4 cup water and jaggery. Mix well and let it cook till the tomatoes become tender. Garnish with cilantro.

  • Add sev and serve the recipe.(Mix sev at the time of serving otherwise it will lose its crispiness).
