Sev Tamatar Sabzi which is known as Sev Tameta nu Shaak in Gujarati  is an easy, quick and delicious recipe from the Gujarati cuisine. This tasty sabzi is extremely easy to make and requires minimum ingredients.  A  tomato gravy is made to which sev is added. The tomato gravy can be made in advance and sev can be added to the gravy close to serving time  or else the sev tends to get soggy.  Sev Tamatar Sabzi tastes great with chapatis / bajra roti.  Here is the recipe:
