  This was a tomato curry was the sindhis . This tastes similar to the tomato kulambu what we make , but we won't add vegetables to it.

 Sindhi are a sindhi speaking ethnic group native to the sindh province of Pakistan. The food of these people is referred as sindhi foods. This curry is one of the sindhi foods.

Method :
Boil about two cups of water in a vessel , add the tomato and cover with a lid , let it be for few minutes – Blanching.

Chop the okra , potatoes and cluster beans.
Heat oil in a pan , add the mustard seeds and cumin seeds , let them crackle.

Add the chopped green chillies and curry leaves , sauté for a minute.
Add in the chopped vegetables and sauté for two minutes.
Now ,add the tomato puree and mix well.
Add in the required salt , turmeric powder , a spoon of sugar and a cup of water. Let it cook in the medium flame.
