Gothsu is a South Indian accompaniment for idli, dosa and pongal. It is either made with kathirkkai (brinjal) or onion-tomato. Gothsu is quite similar to sambar. The difference is that gothsu contains less amount of dal and moong dal is used instead of toor dal. Today, we will see how to make onion tomato gothsu.
Onion tomato gothsu is a simple and easy side dish for idli, dosa, pongal and even upma. This gothsu can be prepared in very less time. I personally prefer gothsu over tiffin sambar. I love the sour taste with the slight hint of sweetness from the jaggery. Try this gothsu for idli or dosa and I'm sure you will fall in love with the flavors.
Notes and Tips
- Gothsu has a thin watery consistency. So if its thick, add water and adjust it.
- If your tomatoes are not sour, add 1 or 2 tsp of tamarind paste.
