Sev Tomato Sabji

This sabji is a typical gujarati sabji which is very easy to prepare but tastes very nice,I learnt this recipe when we were in Ahmedabad.My son was in Sr.Kg and in the evenings he used to attend Skating classes.I had to drop him and pick up from the class.To avoid this pain,I started waiting outside the skating arena .There I befriended many parents.One such parent was Mrs.Patel(I ve forgotten her First Name).We used to exchange some recipes.One such recipe is Sev Tomato Sabji.As any other regional dishes ,this sabji also can be prepared in 'n' number of ways.This is one of the 'n' methods.:-)

Tomatoes 500 gms
Thick Sev/Shev 200 gms(similar to omapodi/karasev)
Garlic 6 to 8 cloves(crushed)
Oil 2 tbsps
Mustard seeds 1 tsp
Cummin seeds/Jira 1 tsp
Garam Masala powder 2 tsp
Red chilli powder to taste
Jaggery 1 tbsp
Turmeric powder
Dhaniya powder 1 tsp
Jira powder 1 tsp
Salt to taste

Chop the tomatoes into pieces.(not very small).
Heat Oil in Kadai.Add Mustard seeds,Cummin seeds,Crushed garlic cloves,Turmeric,Chilli powder,Tomatoes,salt,little water and cook.
After tomatoes are half cooked ,add jaggery,Garam masala powder,Dhaniya and jira powder.
After tomatoes are cooked,add sev and simmer the flame and cook for 3 or 4 minutes and switch off the gas.Some prefer to add sev on the sabji while serving.It depends on the preference. Garnish with coriander leaves.Serve hot.

Padma..are you using macro feature in the camera for taking close up pictures of these dishes? If not you should try that..'Macro' mode provides crisp and focused shots in closeup range..
