Tomato Gravy RecipeTomato Gravy Recipe is one of the traditional Indian recipes which can be used directly with snacks or roti. It is sometimes used as a base recipe to prepare recipes like Paneer recipes, brinjal curry and chicken recipes.

During the months of December and January tomato prices in India comes down, I make use of this and make all kinds of tomato recipes like Tomato Chutney, Tomato Pappu, tomato soup etc. Along with instant curries sometimes I also make sun dried tomato pickle for future use.

As tomatoes are one of the staple foods, in South India many people make use of price drop. I see people preserving tomatoes by drying them in salt and some making pickles. When I am sort of curries, I make use of chutney or pickles made with tomatoes and have with chapati or steamed rice.
