How to make WHOLE SPICES TOMATO THOKKU / SPICED TOMATO PICKLE

  1. Chop tomatoes to small pieces, chop garlic to small bite sized pieces.
  2. In a small pan dry roast cinnamon, cloves, Cumin, fennel seeds till nice aroma comes, remove from flame and grind to fine powder.
  3. In a wide non-stick pan heat oil, followed by mustard when mustard starts spluttering, add curry leaves, garlic and fry till golden brown.
  4. When done add chopped tomatoes and give a quick mix, close the pan and keep the flame in medium.
  5. Once for every 5 mins open the pan and give a quick stir, close the pan,
  6. Let the tomatoes boil till they turn mushy, at this stage add chilli powder, asafoetida, ground spice powders, salt, mix well and close the pan.
  7. Boil, boil and boil the tomatoes till the gravy comes to thick paste stage (as like in picture).
  8. When the gravy reaches thick consistency add jaggery and boil for 3 more minutes till oil leaves the sides of pan.
  9. Switch off the flame and leave the thokku to room temperature, when it reaches to room temperature transfer the thokku to airtight container.

My Tip:

When untouched with hands the thokku will remains fresh even for a week, if refrigerated you can use the thokku for 2 weeks even.
