Tamata - Dosakaya Curry

I am very happy and elated to be one of the lucky draw winner of The Kitchen Masterpiece Event by Chitra Amma's Kitchen. You can have a look at the mind blowing masterpieces participated in the event by clicking here and also you can have a look at my entries by clicking here. Thank you Chitra Amma's Kitchen for this creative event. Thank you to all my blogger and non-blogger buddies who cheered me.

Now coming to today's recipe, Tamata-Dosakaya Curry, I got introduced to this simple and easy to make curry by my husband. In the intial days after my marriage, I was completely amateur about cooking vegetables. The only thing I knew at that time is vegetable fries (Potato fry, Kunduri Fry, Lady's Finger Fry, Brinjal Fry.....). I think he got bored by eating the same old routine fries and so on one fine day way back home he bought gorgeous red Tomatoes (Tamata) and shining
Yellow Cucumber (Dosakaya) and said today I will cook for you. I was on cloud 9 by hearing this and wondering what he is going to prepare with these two different fruits. (Yeah cucumbers are also fruits like tomatoes) To much suprise he prepared this juicy, pleasant-tasting and red-hot combo of tomatoes and cucumber. It was for the very first time he was cooking for me and that too something new which I never tasted before. Ooooooo I was very happy and excited to indulge into it. From that day till today this curry is one of my special favourites. Ok let me stop here and you people scroll down to have a look at the recipe.
