Tips :

You can also avoid onion and make only Tomato Gojju. If your Tomato Gojju is very thick you can add little water and if it is very watery you can add little rice powder to get correct consistency. You can avoid jaggery if you don’t want. I prefer to add, as tomato tangy taste will be modified.
