I like any dishes that are yogurt based.  With lots of protein and  seasonal veggies topped with coconut and mustered seeds is great for any meal.

A healthy and delicious dish.

yogurt  - 1 cup
sour cream - 1/2 cup (optional ,this was not used by my mom when she used to prepare it ,instead sour cream use another 1/2 cup yogurt)


Method

 Heat oil in a pan, then add  all the seasoning ingredients when mustard seeds splatter, add the hing and turmeric powder now add chopped tomatoes and fry for 2-4 mins  till tomates are soft and mashable . Mash them
