Sev Tomato curry (sev tamato nu shaak)

Sev - 1 cup
tomatoes chopped - 2 to 3 medium sized
onions chopped - 1
curry leaves - 4 to 5
coriander chopped - generous amount
red chilli powder - 1 to 2 tsp
turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
dhaniya jeera powder (cumin and coriander taken in equal quantity and grinded into fine powder)- 1 tsp
ajwain (carom seeds) - 1/2 tsp
cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
ginger garlic crushed -1 to 2 tsp
sugar - 1/2 tsp
asafoetida (hing) - a pinch
salt for taste
water - little

Heat oil in a kadhai, once heated add the cumin seeds, hing, ginger garlic, curry leaves and ajwain once you get the aroma add in onions and stir fry until pink then add the chopped tomatoes and cook until they turn mushy then add sugar, red chilli powder along with turmeric and dhaniya jeera powder.Mix all the ingredients properly and let them cook for a few minutes. You can add little water at this stage and make it a bit saucy and let it simmer for a few seconds.Lastly add the chopped fresh coriander and switch off the flame. If you are serving it right away then add the sev immediately after the coriander. If there is still time then add the sev just 5 minutes before the serving or else it will turn mushy.
Serve with hot phulkas or steamed white rice.

P.S. I had also added some gathiyas along with the thin sev.
