  27. Hi I tried this today and it came out really good... one difference is I also used fennel seeds for tempering.. Thanks for the simple and great recipe..

  28. Hi Padhu...I tried this yesterday..It was good. Any idea to reduce the tomato skin (since it was interrupting) ? Please let me know which one of the following idea will work,

    1. Blanch and remove the outer skin
    2. Or simple put all tomatoes in mixer, beat it hard, And take only the tomato essense.

    Regards
