Tomato Hasi

Tomato sasive, also known as tomato hasi, is a delicious and speedy dish that combines the sharpness of mustard, the richness of yogurt, and the tang of ripe tomatoes.

Tomato Hasi

1 cup diced fresh tomato or cherry tomatoes 

1/2 cup yogurt 

1 Tbsp + 1/2tsp black mustard seeds

3 byadagi chillies 

2Tbsp fresh coconut 

Curry leaves

Asafetida. A pinch /hing 

Salt to taste 

Blend together 1Tbsp mustard seeds, chili , coconut and small amount of tomato to a fine paste. Add water if needed. Whisk it with yogurt and keep it aside.

Chop fresh tomato or halve the cherry tomato in half. Add a small amount of oil in a pan, once the pan gets smoky, add remaining 1/2tsp mustard seeds , curry leaves and hing . Turn off the heat once the mustard seeds pop. Add tomatoes and mix thoroughly . Once the pan gets slightly cooler, add the ground paste with yogurt, salt . Mix thoroughly . Serve cold or room temperature. 

  • Add well ripe but firm tomato 

  • Do not cook/ saute the tomato . We want a nice texture.

  • Allow the pan to cool a bit before adding yogurt so that does not split.

  • For a vegan option, skip yogurt and add half a can of coconut milk.
