There are quite a few dishes which I cook on a daily basis which are just that.Simple,easy and not many ingredients.But I don’t think they are blog-worthy.You know,all those simple stuff which tastes awesome but lack the points lookswise.
Few days back while I was raiding the fridge,I saw quite a lot of tomatoes threatening to wrinkle.I had to act fast and how!I remembered I had bought some extra last time to make oven-roasted tomatoes,a recipe I saw on Tarla Dalal’s magazine-Cooking & more,which of course didn’t happen.So I made this ever-so-simple Tomato Fry with Chapathis which disappeared before the chapathis did.So my dear bachelor friends,get some rotis,or even bread from the supermarket and make this tomato fry and see your home-sickness disappear..at least for a while:).
