Kachorin ji Kadi

BM # 5  Day 4
Tomatoes are extensively used in Sindhi dishes.Today I have choosen a curry where the gravy is just with tomatoes.Udad daal has been used for kachori.
These are tiny fried dumplings immersed in light tangy  tomato gravy.You could say something like Rasam Wada!The spices here are different and the addition of sev  changes the taste completely……and this curry is served with a chapatti or a sindhi fulka.
