Tomato Sorak

Tomato Sorak

Tomato Sorak is a plain coconut gravy along the lines of the Goan Sorak Curry (Click here). However, I use coconut milk in this recipe. Therefore, the texture of the gravy is smoother and creamier.

Serves: 6 to 8 Persons

Prep. Time: 20 Mins

Cooking Time: 25 to 30 Mins

Ingredients:

[ Standard Measure – 1 cup = 250 ml.]

  • Tomatoes (Pref. Organic) – 3 to 4 quartered
  • Onion (finely sliced) – 1 medium
  • Light Green Chillies (slit) – 6 to 8
  • For the Spiced Coconut Milk:
    • Coconut (grated) – 1 medium
    • Tamarind – 1 small marble sized ball
    • Jeera [Cumin] Seeds – ¼ tsp.
    • Corriander Seeds – 2 tbsp.
    • Garlic – 2 cloves
    • Kashmiri Chillies – 6 to 8
    • Turmeric – ¼ tsp.
  • Oil – 2 tbsp.
  • Sugar – ½ to 1 tsp.
  • Salt – 1 ½ tsp.

Step 1:      Sprinkle ½ tsp. salt on the quartered tomatoes and keep aside.

Step 2:     Grind all the ingredients for the spiced coconut milk to a fine paste with 3 cups water. Extract the spiced coconut milk from the ground masala paste using a fine mesh sieve (click here for reference).
