TOMATO GREEN CHILLI THOKKU

Tomato - Green Chilli Thokku

This a spicy thokku that goes well with Idli's/ Dosa/s, but I love to have with curd rice.


For this thokku you need

5 nos of ripened big sized tomatoes
8 green chillies.
1/2 tsp. of turmeric powder
1/2 tsp. of chilli powder
2 tbsp. of tamarind extract
3 tbsp. of oil
Salt to taste

For Seasoning

1 tsp. of mustard
A pinch of asafoetida.
Preparation

Wash and chop the tomatoes.

Chop the green chillies.

Heat oil in a pan. Add the mustard seed, when they stop spluttering, add asafoetida.

Add the green chillies and saute for a min.

Now add the chopped tomatoes along with  chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt.

Finally add the tamarind extract to it and mix them gently.

Allow it to boil in a low flame, until the mixture thickens and the oil gets seperated.

Turn off the heat and allow it to cool.

Tomato - Green chilli thokku is ready to be served........


Serve it with Idli's / Dosa's  and enjoy :)

Store in a clean air tight jar in the refrigerator.
