Tomato kurma is very special and tasty dish and it is an excellent combination with Chapati, Appam and Bread. Tomato is very tasty and healthy vegetable which is available on market at any time. Tomato is super combination to make some other tasty non-vegetarian dishes. We can make a lot of variety dishes by using this vegetable and Tomato Kurma is one of the tasty dishes of Tomato. I have made it 3 times in my house and its taste is really good. Usually we are making Kurma with Red Chilli Powder but I like this type dish so I followed this method. This is very thick dish and I would like to use it with Appam for breakfast. It has the mixed smell and taste of Cinnamon Sticks and Cloves. Poppy seeds give thickness to this dish and it also has the taste of Grated Coconut. This is very good vegetarian dish.
