Sev tomato nu shaak/sev tomato gravy dish

Hello all! My today’s recipe is different but I think most of my friends would know this. It was totally new dish for me when I had it first time on my trip to Mount Abu, Rajasthan. You can read about my trip here.
Sev tomato is  I was told it is  a Gujarati dish but since I had it in Rajasthan I would connect it with that location.  This was the very first dish I had once I landed in the lovely hill station. I loved it so much that when  I came back to Mumbai I wanted to make this dish and since then have made it many times. Let me share with you this lovely sweet and spicy recipe and I am sure you would all love it.

EDIT:  When you run out of vegetables this serves its best purpose and sev is available in local stores or any sweet shop. Just  take the spicy thick one as thin one would get soggy too soon. 


4-6 tomatoes
1tsp ginger garlic paste
1/4tsp  cumin seed
1/4tsp mustard seed
1tbsp oil
2green chilli
1/4tsp turmeric powder
1/4tsp coriander powder
1/4tsp garam masala powder
Salt to taste
1 tsp sugar
Coriander leaves to garnish
1/2cup spicy sev
1/2cup water


In a pan heat oil, add cumin seeds and mustard seeds. Stir till they splutter, add green chilli chopped in small pieces.  Add onion chopped in fine pieces and sauté till it turns pink. Add ginger garlic paste and sauté for a minute till the raw smell goes.  Chop tomatoes in small cubes and add it in the pan. Stir and add water and let tomatoes cook for some time.  After few minutes when tomatoes are soft add all the spices except sev and mash the tomatoes slightly. 

Take off the pan and  while serving add sev and coriander leaves. If you add sev before it would get soggy.  Enjoy the sweet and spicy sev tomato sabzi.

Over to you for feedback :)
