ody Stuffed tomato gravy

Stuffed tomato gravy

                Being south indian, I am not familiar with stuffed vegetables.When I came to know about  dishes where stuffed vegetables are used as a side dish for roti and rice,it sounds intresting. I like to try stuffed tomato but most of the recipe i came to know is dry one. I feel it won't be intresting to have it alone, So i came up with an idea of preparing stuffed tomato and serve along with a gravy.This recipe is my experimental one,but came out really awesome.
