1. Wash tomatoes & cut them into medium pieces.
2. In a pan, add both oil (if you dont have Gingelly oil,use only Canola oil - increase amount)& once hot add mustard seeds, methi seeds & let it splutter.
3. Then add chopped tomatoes & cook it. It will leave a lot of water, but will thicken as u cook.
4. Once tomatoes are mashed & half cooked, add chili powder, turmeric powder,Hing, Salt & keep on cooking till it becomes thick & oil starts to come to the sides of the pan.
