How to make TOMATO CORIANDER THOKKU / PICKLE

  1. Dry roast fenugreek and powder it finely
  2. Chop tomatoes and coriander leaves to small pieces.
  3. Heat oil in non-stick pan and add mustard, when mustard starts spluttering add Channa dal, urad dal and saute till golden brown followed by chopped tomatoes.
  4. Close the pan and let the tomatoes fry in medium flame for 10 to 15 mins
  5. For every 5 mins open the pan and saute the tomatoes from bottom. When tomatoes turns mushy add fenugreek powder , chilli powder , turmeric powder , salt , mix well and close the pan.
  6. When the gravy starts thickening add coriander leaves and mix well.
  7. Let the thokku boil till oil seperates. When thokku thickens like thick paste and oil leaves switch off the flame..
  8. If refrigerated the thokku serves even for a month.

My Tip:

1) Use gingelly oil, it gives best taste and good for preservation. 2) Use fresh ripe tomatoes. 3) If you have no stick kadai use it else use some thick bottom kadai to avoid burning at bottom. 4) If you feel oil is insufficient you can add 2 tsp of oil at final stage also.
