ONION TOMATO GRAVY RECIPE | SIDE DISH FOR IDLI DOSA &ROTI

This onion tomato gravy is a simplest one which my mom makes whenever we go out for any picnics or any tours along with chapathis or dosais. We usually call this as thakkali vengayam. I usually make this onion tomato gravy whenever i run out of any veggies and no mood to make any elaborate side dish for idli or dosa or roti.
