  • 2 cups water or little more if needed


  • Wash the tomatoes and grind it slightly coarse along with cashews and coconut with enough water. If you are using a food processor to grind the tomato coconut cashew mixture, you can just use the 2 cups of water which will give you a thick gravy. If you are using a blender, you may need some extra water to grind everything.
  • Heat oil in a pan and fry the broken dried red chilies.
  • Add the grind tomato mixture (with cashews and coconut) to the pan and you can add little extra water if the gravy is too thick.
  • Saute the mixture for about 4 to 5 minutes or until the mixture is cooked and the oil starts separating from the sides of the pan.
  • Add the salt and garlic powder, stir well and cook in low heat for 2 more minutes.
  • Add all remaining spices to the pan - turmeric powder, red chili powder, cumin seeds powder and garam masala powder and stir everything well until well combined.
  • Cook the mixture in low heat for another 2 minutes. In case you need even more gravy, you can add a bit more water and heat the mixture for 1 more minute, tomato masala curry is ready to be served!
