Introduction

This is a recipe from The Ayurvedic Cookbook, page100. I didn't have fresh tomatoes or sesame seeds so i used canned diced tomatoes and some sesame oil and the calories etc. reflect that. But I am writing the recipe exactly as it appears in the book for my own easy reference. =) This is a recipe from The Ayurvedic Cookbook, page100.
