Thakkali Pachadi


Thakkali Pachadi

Today's recipe is a simple and lightly tangy pachadi made with tomatoes. It is quick side dish for rice. All you need to do is to saute tomatoes and add spiced yogurt. In some regions the tomatoes are not cooked. They are just smashed with hands and yogurt is mixed followed by tempering.You can use any of this methods either raw as a salad or briefly cooked. It has a nice cooling effect on the body and is healthy and delicious.

Ingredients
Tomatoes- 4 medium
Green chilly- 2
Dry red chilly- 2
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves- a few
Sugar-1 1/2 tsp
salt to taste
oil- 2 tsp

Yogurt- 1 1/2 cup
Grated coconut-1/4 cup
Cumin- a pinch


Cut tomatoes into cubes. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When the splutter add curry leaves and dry red chilly and fry for a few seconds. After this add diced tomatoes and green chilly,sugar and salt and saute till the tomatoes get soft and cooked. Switch off the flame and let it cool down
Meanwhile make a paste of grated coconut, cumin. Blend this mixture into the yogurt and pour it over the cooked tomatoes. You can serve it like this or just heat and allow the pachadi to warm a bit. Serve with rice.

Version 2:  Chop tomatoes and slightly mash it with hands and mix the coconut -yogurt mixture and finally do tempering with oil,mustard seeds, dry red chilly and curry leaves and pour on top. This is an instant pachadi as there is no actual cooking involved.
Note:You can substitute tomatoes with mangoes that are slightly sweet,not too ripe ones to make an instant   mango kichadi.
