The quantity of each ingredient used in the dish has not been mentioned, because it is a simple recipe. You may decide on the quantity in accordance with the number of people you plan to cook for.


  1. Thank you for this recipe - I made it for lunch today, and it turned out well! I'm familiar with something similar, which I make often: it's with boiled potato and coarsely crushed black pepper, but no tomato. I must agree that the addition of the tomato gives it more character. Am adding this to my list of easy recipes!

  2. The key must be LOTS of pepper :D This looks easy enough for even ME to make. And has made me hungry!

  3. My mum usually adds these little touches like the tomato for instance which usually makes a difference.

  4. One of my favourites tiffins in school. If i were to have it now just by itself (not with, say, porota), i would crumble some phhuckas into it for the crunch. What do you think?
    Very colorful blog, btw :)

  5. That is a great idea must try it sometime.

  6. Looks a very simple recipe.
    Even I should be able to make this! :-)
    Thanks, Shilpi.

  7. I like to have it for breakfast with some toast. I have never tried it but I think a sandwich with this filling should taste quite nice.
