Tomato Stew (pulusu )

 Tomatoes and onions are a  must haves in my kitchen counter ,and this is a spicy splatter of this combination.
This is my mom's recipe which is delectable with its great texture .
A perfect side dish to rice, flavored rice, curries, roti, idli, dosa .
This is a basic base to many gravy curries too, so, if you like you can throw in some boiled potatoes, green peas or cauliflower  or boiled eggs or just tofu  .
Being a simple ingredient base gravy or stew it does take very less time to cook .

Buttermilk Stew / Dahi kadhi (Majjiga pulusu)

This traditional dish is not only a favorite to Punjabi people , but also to South Indians . Simple ingredients make it more delightful. 
It's taste varies depending upon the region , today I am sharing the  Andhra style khadi/ stew , without pakora (which is more traditional punjabi style) .
A perfect side dish with rice, roti, chapathi, poori, naan, flavored rice , idli, dosa .
As this is made with almost negligible oil ,  steamed veggies , dals and buttermilk  it's even a healthy complement to many  dishes .You can almost add any veggie to this stew to make it more tasty and mouth watering .
