Matar Tamatar - Tomato & Peas Curry

What do you turn to when you want to make a quick curry for dinner along with roti?I sometimes plan exhaustively for something and forget to stock up the main ingredient and have no choice but to whip up something with available ingredients.Onions and tomatoes always come to rescue as,a simple curry with stir-fried onions and tomatoes taste great with rotis. 

I signed up for Blog-hop Wednesdays a while back and was looking forward to cooking from the blog assigned to me.I was paired with Nisha and the moment I got to know I started browsing her blog.I finalised on this Mushroom thoran but,yes you guessed right,forgot to buy a packet of mushrooms for today.I didn't want to delay posting this,so went ahead with this simple curry.
Blog-hop Wednesdays is an event started by Radhika,wherein we are assigned a blog every alternate Wednesday and we are supposed to cook from that blog and blog about it.What a great way to get to know each others blogs and bring variety to the dining table!
