Tomato Bhath

Posted by Annita on April 12, 2007

I was supposed to post this for JFI- Tomato,but somehow i missed it.I have so many excuses for that..easter celebrations,my son’s ear infection, my amma’s return trip….Anyways better late than never,and so here i’m with my favorite crowd pleaser recipe.I’ve first tasted Tomato Bhath in a potluck party,and fell in love with it instantly.Since then i’ve tried different recipes from different sources,and finally got stuck with this one from a simple recipe and can be prepared easily.
