    Tomato Barta

    4-5 tomatoes
    1 cup yogurt
    A pinch of turmeric
    2 tsp salt
    2 tsp chili powder
    1 tsp ginger garlic paste
    1 tsp garam masala powder
    1/2 cup peanuts
    3 tbsp khus khus seeds
    2 onions, chopped
    Coriander leaves (cilantro) for garnishing

    Add salt, turmeric, chili powder, ginger garlic paste, garam masala powder to the yogurt and mix well.
    Mix the peanuts, khus khus seeds and blend them to a fine paste using water.
    Make a few spots on tomatoes with a knife and allow them to stay in yogurt for 30-40 minutes.
    Heat oil in a pan and fry the onions until golden brown.
    Remove the tomatoes from yogurt and add to the onions. Cook the tomatoes until they are tender.
    Now add the yogurt mixture to the tomatoes and cook until the gravy becomes thick.
    Finally add the peanuts paste to the curry and mix well. (You can also use sesame seeds instead of peanuts if you want).
    Garnish with cilantro and serve hot.
