This is the easiest and quickest  tomato curry which goes well with all dosa, rotis etc..   This can be used with rice for meals also.  Phanna upkari is a Konkani traditional dish in which we generally use red chillies and tamarind then season with onion.  (refer different types of Fish phanna upkari in blog).  I learnt this from Sudha pachi (aunty).   She introduced this dish into our family.  The taste of this phanna upkari is very nostalgic and takes me to my childhood days.  Even though she was a working woman she always found time to prepare this for us, even after coming back from work.   Today is mother’s day and My aunt is very much like mother and I still miss your tomato phanna upkari.


Tomatoes                           --  5 to 6
Onion                                  --  2 medium size
Red chilly powder            --   2 tsp (as per your spice level)
Oil                                        --   1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Finely chop onions and tomatoes and keep separately.  Take a deep frying pan, add oil when heats add finely chopped onions fry till golden brown then add chilly powder fry slightly for 2-4 seconds.   Quickly add tomatoes and salt and fry for 2 seconds then add little water just boil it for 5 to 10 minutes.   Tomato phanna upkari is ready to serve.
