Time really flies ! So far completed 90 diet friendly recipes and only, 10 more days left to complete my healthy challenge.. Here comes my today's healthy meal - Tomato bhath using wheat rava. Tomato bhath is a tasty and easy meal which can served for breakfast or dinner along with raita. To make it diet friendly, I have used wheat rava ( big / mota ) in this recipe which can also be substituted with Bansi rava, regular wheat rava or Bombay rava.

4 Green chillies, chopped
2 Springs of Curry leaves
3 Big Tomatoes, Finely chopped 
1 Tsp Ginger, Finely chopped
Less than 1/4 Tsp Turmeric powder 
Salt to taste
Mint leaves for garnishing

Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds.

Once it starts spluttering, add jeera seeds followed by channa dal and hing.

Now add turmeric powder followed by chopped tomatoes and salt.

Saute till the tomatoes turns soft and mushy.

Cook it for 5 minutes or till the water reduces.
