Tomato Pickle

Yesterday i heard my aunt talk about tomato pickle. I wanted to try it myself. Now that i got it, i want to share it with you people.

Ingredients :
  • Tomatoes : 250 gms, cut into long pieces
  • Oil : 3-5 table spoons
  • Red chilly powder : 2-3 table spoons
  • Salt : 1-2 table spoon
  • Asafoetida : a pinch or two
  • Mustard Powder : 2-3 table spoons
  • Tamarind : size of lemon

Procedure :

  • Grind mustard seeds into a powder and keep it aside.
  • Heat oil and add tomatoes and tamarind and let the whole mixture boil till it becomes soft.
  • Add red chilly powder, salt, asafoetida and mustard powder and boil the whole thing for some more time till the oil floats on top.
  • You can also add a pinck of methi powder while it is boiling but i usually avoid it for the fear of turning the pickle bitter. A pinch wouldn't make much difference i guess.

Your tomato pickle is ready. Have it with hot rice and ghee.
