Fire Roasted tomato

4 medium size tomato
3/4 cup chopped onion
2 chopped green chili or to taste
1 tablespoon minced ginger
1/2 teaspoon of salt or to taste
1/4 teaspoon of sugar (optional)
A few chopped cilantro leaves (dhania patta)
3 tablespoon oil

First roast two of the tomatoes lightly enough to give the curry a smoked flavor.  After it is roasted let it cool and chop it with rest of the tomatoes.

Heat a pan on medium heat with 2 tablespoon of oil.  Add the chopped onion and saute it until it is translucent do not allow it to turn brown.  Add the minced ginger and chopped green chilies saute it for a few seconds and the chopped cilantro leaves add the chopped tomatoes and cook until the curry is somewhat dry (takes about 15 minutes).  Add salt, sugar and cilantro leaves mix it, and it is ready to serve.  Serves 4.

This is a delicious curry with a smoked flavor.  It reminds you of the outdoors.  Served as a side dish, it works great as a bread spread or chapati spread.
