Simple,quick,easy to prepare and great tasting dish.I love the tangy taste .You can actually play around with this veggie and believe me you can't go wrong.You can prepare tomato curry in many different ways.Today I've tried Methi tomato ,all it needs is extra touch of garlic,garam masala gives it great flavor. 

Tomato is a good source of calcium and iron. It also contains some amounts of phosphorus, sulfur and potassium.
Vitamin Content: Tomato is rich in vitamin C and contains some vitamin B and vitamin A. The vitamin C content increases as the vegetable ripens.
Health Benefits of Tomato: The nutritional value of tomato makes it good for weight loss, obesity, eye disorders, night blindness, urinary tract infection, liver disorders, jaundice, indigestion, morning sickness, constipation, diarrhea, intestinal disorders, and diabetes. It also helps in cleansing the body of toxic compounds.
Ingredients:
Tomatoes - 3-4 medium
Onion - 1 big
Garlic - 4 cloves
Methi Leaves - 1 cup
Coriander powder - 1/4 tsp
Red chili powder - 3/4 tsp(add according to taste)
Salt - to taste
Green Chillies - 2(Add according to taste)
Cilantro/Coriander leaves - 1/4 cup
Garam masala - 1/4 tsp(optional)
Spring Onions - 1/4 cup
Cumin Seeds/Jeera - 1/4 tsp
Method:
1.Wash and dice the tomatoes,onions.Chop green chillies,garlic,methi,spring onions,cilantro and keep them aside.
2.Heat oil in a pan.Add cumin seeds and once they start spluttering add green chillies,onions and saute them .Once the onions are 50% cooked add ginger garlic paste,add turmeric after the raw smell of g-g paste disappears.
3.Add chopped methi leaves,spring onion and cook for 5 min on medium flame ,add tomatoes and saute them for 2 min.Add salt and red chili powder,garlic mix it and cook it covered for 8-10 min on medium flame.Mix it occasionally(methi leaves a bitter taste if it burns).
4.Add garam masala(its optional,I didn't use it).Check the seasoning add if anything is required and add cilantro and cook it according to your taste(based on the consistency).Switch off the heat .

Serve with roti/rice.
