Tomato pachadi


My love for certain things is never ending. My ammumma is an expert in making chutneys. She could turn the most boring stuff into the most sought after stuff with her magical chutneys and pachadis. I know many of you would hate idlies, but with a person like my ammumma around, you never get to crib. First because she wouldnt care if you didn't eat something because you feel its boring. Second, she makes these yummy chutneys, that you hardly think about cribbing. I am not a very good cook as of now, but when i become one, i want to be like my ammumma.

This chutney is like the saviour when everything else fails you. I love tangy stuff, be it tamarind or tomatoes. So, this is THE combo that would suite my jihva ;-)

Ingredients :

Tomatoes - 6 ripe ones
Tamarind - Gooseberry sized
Chilli powder - 2 spoons
Salt - to taste
Mustard - 1/2 spoon
Asafoetida - 1/4 spoon
Turmeric powder - 1/4 spoon
Oil - for seasoning

Method :

Cut the tomoatoes into tiny pieces. Add some oil in a wok. When the oil is hot, add the tomatoes, tamarind and the turmeric powder. Cover and cook until half done. At this stage add the salt and let it cook till the juices start evaporating. When the tomoatoes start getting really gooy, mash them with a spoon nicely. Turn off the heat and then add the chilli powder. Season with some oil, mustard seeds and asafoetida. Your chutney is ready to be served with rice, roti and even toast.
