Tomato Pickle

Tomato Pickle is really easy to make & comes in handy on those days your lazy too cook.. goes well as an accompianment with dosas, Idlis or even Rice & Dhal!


Tomatoes - 10 no (I used Roma Tomatoes)
Canola Oil - 2 tbspns
Gingelly Oil - 2 tbspns
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
Meethi Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Chili Powder - 1 1/2 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
Hing - 1/4 tsp
Salt - to taste


1. Wash tomatoes & cut them into medium pieces.

2. In a pan, add both oil (if you dont have Gingelly oil,use only Canola oil - increase amount)& once hot add mustard seeds, methi seeds & let it splutter.

3. Then add chopped tomatoes & cook it. It will leave a lot of water, but will thicken as u cook.

4. Once tomatoes are mashed & half cooked, add chili powder, turmeric powder,Hing, Salt & keep on cooking till it becomes thick & oil starts to come to the sides of the pan.

Your pickles ready to serve. Can be stored for a few days.

For variation, i add chopped garlic or ginger in sometimes, while cooking.
