TOMATO THOKKU

Most of them are very fond of pickles. I know and I am one among them. I cannot digest my lunch without having a side of pickles. So one sunday asusual when we were watching tv, my hubby insisted me to help him to make this tomato pickle. And whoever dont like tasting food that taste entirly different from what we make? So quickly noded my head and within a sec we were in kitchen. Its really nice to have somone help us at the time of cooking right and why not specially with loving hubby :)hehe. The taste was just out of this world and I drool like having a bowl of curd rice on that movment. But that was our dinner time so we satistifed having spicy pickle with hot ghee roast dosa.



INGREDIENTS.

5 Chopped Ripe Tomatoes.

2 Chopped Pearl Onions.

3 tbsp Chilli powder.(Kashmiri powder)

1 tsp Turmeric powder.

1 tsp Hing.

2 tbsp Gingelly oil.

2 Strings of Curry leaves.

2 tbsp Mustard seeds.

1 tbsp Methi seeds.

1/2 tsp Lemon juice.

Salt to taste.


METHOD.

Dry roast mustard seeds and methi seeds separatly till you get a nice aroma of the roasted ingredients. Cool them and powder them in a blender.

In a pan add half of gingelly oil and fry chopped onions with a bit of salt. Remove them in a bowl till it turns brown.

In the same remaning oil, add tomatoes and fry them. Once they are cooked, add chilli powder, turmeric powder, curry leaves and salt.Add remaning oil and fry them for a while. Add hing and lemon juice and lastly the mustard methi powder as needed. (leftover can be stored in an airtight container and can be used further)

Tranfer them in a bowl and serve with delicious curd rice.


Hey guys, I would like to share one pic of 'JELLY' that my hubby did last weekend. That was soo attractive that I did not allow anyone to have them before I had my click. Have a look,


Enjoy!!
