Green Tomato with Kidney Beans Curry

I already bought Green unripe tomatoes for thid week's event, and was thinking how to make them . Has got one maharastian style curry to make with from my neighbour friend, but as per what she described it consumes much oil. My mind is not so wise to consider that much oil to consume, so finally thought to make it some way such that it will be healthy and nutritiuos too . And when it come to nutritions, my mind reminds me of beans always. And this way I come up with this dish .

Ingredients:
5- 6 Unripe green tomatoes , cut into cubes,
1 cup kidney beans , soaked over night,
Few peanuts roasted ,
1/4 cup coriander leaves,
1 tsp lemon juice,
1 tsp red chili powder,
1/4 tsp turmeric powder,
1/2 tsp mustard seeds,
1/2 tsp cumin seeds,
a pinch of asafoetida,
salt to taste.
1/2 tsp oil .

Method:
Soak Kidney beans over night and pressure cook it , until they are soft .
Select firm unripe tomatoes , cut them into medium sized cubes and bring it boil seperately until they are tender.
Now mix coriander leaves , roasted peanuts and lemon juice together and blend them , make a smooth paste of it. while Kidney beans turn little cool ,mash them or crush them using hand blender, take care to do not crush it to smooth paste .
In a pan heat oil, add mustard seeds when they start spluttering , add cumin seeds and a pinch of asafoetida. Add the crushed kidney beans to it , and let it cook until all extra water from it evaporates. add the smooth paste of coriander leaves and roasted peanuts to it. Mix well and finally add red chilli powder, turmeric powder , salt , garam masala and cooked tomatoes.
cook it for a minute and turn off the heat.

Serve hot with Roti.

As I have still so many recipes remaining to present here with tomatoes, I am keeping Tomato continue as Vegetable of The next Week too. Just a little variation is that I will be posting it late by 1 day in the next week as I am going out of Pune and not going to keep Laptop with me(asking why ? - give me a break, man! :)) ) , I will be back on tuesday :) .Till then stock our pantry with tomatoes and keep on watching the show :D . Yet much more intresting dishes to come. :) Have a happy weekend and healthy meals. !
