Thakkaali Oorugaai -Tomato Pickle

Karthi from kitchenmate, and Saffron from Saffron Hut inspired me to do this beautiful Thakkaali Oorugaai/Tomato pickle. My husband bought a bag of tomatoes in the market on saturday and I was wondering what am I going to do with these tomatoes. Then I realised looking at this beautiful pickle in one of the blogs I visited a while ago. I followed their Ingredients and method and just added little bit of my magic to create this one. Here you go..

1kg Tomato

4tbs Raw chilli powder

1tsp sugar

salt, Hing and oil

Method: In a big vessel add oil and when hot add some mustard seeds and curry leaves and add bit of hing. After few seconds add Pureed tomato( I peeled Tomatoes by immersing them in hot water and then in cold water for few minutes and pureed tomatoes in food processer), salt and let it simmer for nearly an hour mixing now and then. At the end add chillipowder and let it simmer for another 10 minutes or until the mixture starts to leave the pan. Let it cool and store it in jar or bottle. You can keep this in fridge for couple of weeks.

Tip: when serving always use a dry spoon.
