Oniona and Tomato Kuruma

A very easy to make Kuruma that tastes extraordinarily well. Once you  taste this, I  guarantee that you will become an addict to this. This kuruma surprisingly also goes very well with Idli and Dosa. A mild spicy gravy with the richness of onion and tomato is one of the best combination for the Indian bread varieties too..
