Tomato Sev Curry

Tomato Sev Curry

I am finally posting the tomato sev curry that we had with onion and potato subji a few weeks ago. They go so well together!

The first time my husband made tomato sev curry, I was skeptical. Curry made with sev?? Sev is little crunchy deep fried noodles made of chick pea (besan) flour that is used most often in chat (Indian fast food/snack food). But it works surprisingly well in curry!

1 tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon cumin seeds (jeera)
1 onion sliced
2 garlic cloves chopped
1 piece ginger minced
3-4 tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon amchur powder
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons tomato paste
1 cups water
1 cup sev
1/4 cup cilantro chopped

  1. Heat oil in a saute pan and add cumin seeds.
  2. Once cumin seeds start to get toasty, add the onions and saute until they brown, adding the garlic part way through cooking.
  3. Add the ginger, tomatoes, turmeric, chili powder, amchur powder, and salt, and cook until the tomatoes get mushy.
  4. Add the sugar, tomato paste, and water and cook for a few more minutes.
  5. Add the sev and cook until soft.
  6. Stir in cilantro and serve.
