Tomato Kurma with Coconut Milk

Sharing is caring!

When I was making the Sunday Breakfast, I suddenly realized that the version of tomato kurma that I already have, is different from the one that I am making currently. As you might know, Tomato Kurma has lots of memories associated and when I visited Vaishali for our BM 25 Celebrations, she had wanted me to make.
I made it for them and everybody loved. After couple of weeks later, Vaishali called up to ask the recipe. I said it’s on the blog, only to realise what I already have is different from what I make now. Of course the same ingredients in a different way and method. Only it made all the difference.
Then I thought I might as well record this as this is what my kids love. Appam with Tomato Kurma is a standard breakfast at home every Sunday and it’s a pleasure to share with all what my kids love.
