If you are having so much of coriander you can do this curry which is so tasty and goes very well with hot hot phulkas and jeera rice. Its wonderful combo of potato, mutter and mushroom. Easy to make and taste delish with aroma of butter in it . Try it out. And I usually make color chappathis by adding pureed vegetables to the dough. It gives mild flavour to chappathi and also a variation for kids.. That way this tomato chappathi goes very well with this curry. Here goes the recipe...

Ingredients :

Potato - 2 peel the skin and cut to medium cubes
Onion - 1 sliced
Mushroom - 2 cups chop into 6 pieces
Mutter - 1 cup
Coriander - 1 bunch chopped finely
Garam masala - 1 tbsp
Chilli powder - as required
Salt, oil
Butter - 1 tbsp

Method :

1. Heat oil in the frying pan. Add the onion, saute for few seconds.
2. Add the potato, mushroom, peas and add the chilli and garam masala.
3. Divide the coriander to 2 portions. one portion add to the veggies.
4. Add salt and saute it for few seconds.
5. Now add water so that the veggies should be immersed 3/4th.
6. Close with lid 3/4 th and let it cook until all the water is absorbed.
7. Now add the remaining coriander and dollop of butter serve hot with roti and rice.

Note :

1. The left over of this can be used for bread making bread sandwich..tastes great.

Tomato chappathi

Ingredients :

Wheat flour - 2 cups
Tomato - 1 big
Garlic - 1
Chilli powder and salt
water for making dough


1. Puree the tomato and garlic and strain it using strainer.
2. Add them to the flour and make dough by adding chilli powder and salt to it. Divide into equal balls.
3.Take a ball, press it in dry flour on both sides. Roll into a circle.
4. If the dough sticks to the rolling pin or rolling surface, lightly dust it with dry flour.
5.Heat the skillet . Place the chappathi over skillet. They start puffing with small bubbles now flip over another side press slightly with spatula so that it puffs well again.
6.Make chappathi and serve hot with curry or raita.

Note :

You can add chopped coriander , mint or methi to the dough.
And serve with any vegetable raitas...

Thanks for those lovely words in my alagar koil dosai dear.
Tomato chapathi is very new to me. But seems so attractive. Should try soon. Potato n mushroom curry with that butter decoration makes me drooling. Seems like a feast for me.

Viki those are not butter , they are button mushroom.
