Tomato Pickle

    Have enough tomato left and I wanted to use it to the core...I did tomato dosa and chutney the other day...The next recipe that caught ma mind was tomato pickle...Anything based with tomato is ma favourite and when you get tomato for cheap rates all I do is stock it and utilize it to the maximum...And people who love tangy cum caustic recipes would love this pickle a lot.Below is the recipe part.


Tomato-10 in number(big size)
Mustard seeds-1 tablespoon
Fenugreek powder-1 tablespoon
Red chilli powder-as desired by you
turmeric powder-1 tablespoon
Asafetida- a pinch
Jaggery-a small piece
salt-as required


1.Chop tomato into very small pieces.
2.In a wok/kadai add oil(generous amount) and wait till it gets heated.
3.Add mustard seeds and wait till it splutters.
4.Now add tumeric and redchilli powder and give it a quick stir.
5.Add the finely chopped tomato followed by salt and wait till tomato cooks well and becomes mushy.Also at a stage oil will start leaving out from the mixture.At this stage add fenugreek powder ,jaggery and asafetida and give it a nice stir for 2 minutes.
6.Switch the stove off and cool it.

You shall store it in an air tight container and serve it as a side dish or enjoy the taste with curd rice :)
