Well! its ok. There is no need to grind the tomatoes. It will be nice, if its cut into pieces. Also, the oil measurement is not mentioned. To preserve the preparation without any preservatives for about a year, you can cut the tomatoes into small pieces, smear turmeric, dry it in the sun for 2 days and then cook it in hot oil. There is no need to close the lid then. The reason being, the vapour formed therefore might lead to formation of fungus layer. Also, if you dry roast the mustard seed & fenugreek seed (1 to 2 teaspoon, depending on your preference), powder it and add it to the thokku, it will be even more tastier.
