This is something I do quite often when tomatoes are cheap. It goes great with grilled fish, or grilled meat. Not bad on toast either. These measurements are a guess, have never measured anything for this.

- 1 medium yellow onion, chopped finely around (150g)
- 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger

- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 4 medium tomatoes, chopped coarsely (720g)

This is the first time I've made curried tomatoes and I really enjoyed the recipe. The flavours were outstanding. The only thing I changed was I used raw sugar instead of palm and I used preserved kaffir lime leafs instead of fresh ones. Thank you Latch - Rest in Peace.
How sad that i cant thank Latchy for this wonderful dish, A great way to use up late tomatoes, I subbed a piece of lime peel for the kaffir lime leaf, and also used light brown sugar, like Sandi did.
Oh Latchy... the first recipe of yours I've ever made and I can't even thank you. :o( It was sublime. I will think of you on each of the MANY occasions we enjoy this dish! Instead of chili paste, I used what I had: a ready-made curry paste. Mmmm! I also didn't have kaffir lime leaves, so I went out back and tore two lemon verbena leaves off my plant. Perfect! Just remember to remove them like the instructions say. ;o) For palm sugar, I used light brown sugar. I know, I know... lots of subs, but it was still a 5-star recipe all the way. Thank you, Latchy, wherever you are!
