I can say this is a bachelor friendly recipe.Mom usually makes this for long journeys and this can be mixed with rice too. 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. This pairs well with masala paratha and Masala poori.

Note:

  • You can add 1/4 tsp of freshly ground black pepper and you can reduce the quantity of sambar powder.
  • If you are packing for any picnic or trips, once it is done, just allow it to cool completely and store it in a clean dry bottle or plastic box.
  • You can cook this for more time till it becomes completely dry and this will stay little more longer than the gravy one.
  • Always use clean dry spoon to take the onion tomato gravy.
