Tomato Baath

Tomato Baath is one of the meals which can be made in one vessel without having to prepare dal or any side dish for it. I already posted one recipe like this which is Rice Pongal. Tomatoes are available in almost every house and whenever we are running out of time we can prepare this dish. This recipe can be served as breakfast, lunch or dinner along with yogurt. I usually pack this as lunch for my husband when I am tired of making rotis and curry :).
