Sev Tamatar

Sev Tamatar is a traditional Gujarati tomato and sev curry. This is easy-to-make tangy recipe that can be served with roti or chapati. 


Tomato - medium sized, 12 no, chopped

Onion - large, 1 no, chopped (Optional)*

Oil - 2 tablespoons

Cumin seeds/Jeera- 1 teaspoon

Turmeric powder - ½ teaspoon

Coriander powder - 1 tablespoon

Cumin powder - 1 teaspoon

Ginger green chilli paste - 1-2 teaspoons (adjust to taste)

Sugar or jaggery powder - 1 teaspoon

Asafoetida - a generous pinch

Salt - to taste

Coriander leaves - chopped, 1 tablespoon

Sev - preferably thick variety, 1 cup or as required** 

*Onion is not used in the traditional preparation. However, I prefer to add onion.

**Sev can be made at home using a sieve with larger holes.


Heat oil in a kadai; add cumin seeds and when they start to sputter, add in chopped onion. Sauté till onion turns light brown in color. Add tomato pieces, masala powders, salt, sugar, ginger-green chili paste and asafoetida. Add 1 cup of water and mix well. Cover and cook on low flame till the tomato becomes pulpy. Mash with a vegetable masher and add half a cup of water if needed. Simmer for a minute. Garnish with coriander leaves. Add sev just before serving.
