Tomato Kurma I

This is the first recipe i learned when i was a cooking beginner. My dad loves me to prepare this dish during weekends. Reason is, so that i can learn to cook and the taste will be good when i prepare this dish. Guess, the second statement should be a Pseudo one, actually the truth behind is to make my mom free from morning tiffen :( Anyway friends, check out this and let me know whether the taste is good or not.

Coconut - 5 or 6 pieces

Oil - To garnish

To Grind:
