Tomato chutney/ thakkali thokku/ Spicy tomato dip

    Thakkali (Tomato) thokku  is a spicy chutney which will definitely hit it off with Idly. This is the side dish my mom used to make for overnight train travel and so has a nostalgic feeling to me. This chutney can survive hot climate for a long time just like achaar (pickle) without any additional refrigeration.

Serves up to 3 people
Preparation time: 15 minutes


3 large tomato
2 tsp of red chilly powder
1 tsp of coriander powder
pinch of turmeric
1 tbsp of sesame oil
salt as required

For seasoning:

1/2 tsp of mustard


1. Chop the tomatoes and add the other ingredients(except oil and the seasoning) together and grind them in to a paste.
2.Heat oil in the pan and add the tomato paste.Saute well till the tomato paste starts to thicken. Switch off the flame.
3.Fry the mustard in oil and  add to the tomato chutney. Serve this spicy chutney with any tiffin varieties.
