For the Cottage cheese lovers here is another Tomato Onion base semi gravy dish.

I used this to eat as a side with roti and the next day the left over which was  dry was  rolled in nice thin rotis,with a dash of ketchup and presented  in my kid’s lunch box as a wrap.To my fussy little eater it seemed to make an impression ,though wat she came told me was “Mom the CHICKEN wrap was very good”……hah!if I can get her to eat her lunch then I have won the battle today…..if she thinks it was chicken I have won twice over ;-).
