How to make Green Tomato Pachadi Recipe

  1. Dry roast the sesame seeds and the cumin seeds separately and set aside
  2. Heat oil in a pan and add the fenugreek seeds, once they turn brown add the green chilli and chopped tomatoes and fry for a minute.
  3. Add turmeric, salt, jaggery and tamarind pulp and cook it covered for 10-12 mins or till the water is completely evaporated. Then take it off the heat and set aside to cool.
  4. Blend the roasted sesame seeds and the cumin seeds to a fine powder in a blender jar. Add the cooked tomato mixture to the powdered sesame seed mixture and blend to a fine paste.
  5. Transfer the contents from the blender jar to a clean bowl and set aside.
  6. Heat oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds. Once they sputter add the urad dal and fry till they turn brown.
  7. Add the curry leaves, red chili flakes and fry till the curry leaves turn crisp. Stir in the asafoetida and take off the heat.

My Tip:

The tamarind pulp can be skipped if the tomatoes you are using are sour. The red chili flakes can be substituted with red chilli.
