Onion tomato gothsu recipe – Side dish for idli,dosa and pongal

        At my place, tomato gothsu or kathrikkai/brinjal gothsu is made along with pongal. I have made this a couple of times though not frequently. I was really wondering what to make for dinner one night. I was in no mood to make chapatis which I usually make for dinner almost everyday.I had some idli batter left and decided to go ahead with some kancheepuram idlis and some gothsu to go with it. It made a good combination. It is really easy to make and is ready in minutes.Next time, when you don’t have much time for a side dish for idlis , dosa or pongal , try this one.

    This recipe is followed at my place and my mom and grandmom make this way though I have seen people follow different methods of making it.
