Tomato pickle

Tomato pickle is a tangy and tasty recipe. This is a very simple recipe which is easy to make in less time. This goes well with curd rice and dosa. I love this a lot. The shelf life of this is one week.

  • Wash and grind the tomatoes.
  • In a heavy bottomed vessel, add oil and splutter mustard seeds.
  • Now add the tomato puree, turmeric powder, jaggery and salt. Add red chilli powder at the last stage since it will turn black.
  • Allow it to cook in low flame.

  • Cook for five minutes and turn of the stove.
  • It goes well with Dosa, Curd rice, Adai.

Note : You can make this in three ways.

Directly making the puree after washing the tomatoes /  removing the seeds/ removing the skin and seeds.
