leave it to cool,In a mixie grind coarsly into powder.Store it in a air tight jar for future use.
2.Wash and cut cherry tomatoes into halves,cut on a plate so that the juice is not wasted.
3.Heat oil in a pan,add mustard and wait until they crackle then add curry leaves and hing,fry for second then after add tomatoes fry for a minute and add salt sugar,chillipowder and methi powder.cook for 2-3 minutes,switch off the flame.Leave it to cool.Store in a air tight jar.
4.Serve as accompainment with sambhar and rice or yoghurt rice.

Note:
1.You can use any variety of tomatoes,if big varieties cut then into bite size pieces.
2.I have mentioned 1/4 cup of methi because you can't use less than this quantitiy
in a mixer jar to grind.and will be difficulty to grind.
3.Use only 2 tsp of methi powder for this recipe as mentioned above if you are preparing in large quantity increase the amount.store rest of the powder in air tight container.
4.This can be last upto week in a refrigirator.make sure you use a clean dry spoon every time 
you serve.
