Tomato Pickle

One of my favourite pickles out of those my Mom prepares. Good combination with Chappatis, Bread, Rice and ya Puri. I got to try it out now and you know what it tastes yummy. Here we go with the recipe.
Tomato Pickle
Ingredients :

  • 1.5 kgs ripe tomatoes (you could use tinned tomatoes)
  • 2 tbl spoon chili powder
  • 4 small sized garlic bulbs
  • 1 tea spn tamarind extract
  • 1 tea spn mustard seeds
  • 1 tea spn sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tea spn fenugreek seeds
  • 1/2 tea spn turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tea spn asafoetida powder
  • 3 tbl spoon oil
  • salt to taste
Method of preparation :  
  • Heat 1 tbl spoon oil and fry mustard, sesame and fenugreek seeds and see that it doesn’t burn. 
  • Get this to room temperature now add chili powder, turmeric, asafoetida and grind it to fine powder.
  • Cut garlic into two slices each, now heat 1 tbl spoon oil and add garlic, fry for 3  4 min.
  • In a big thick bottomed vessel / non sick vessel add 1 tbl spoon oil, chopped tomatoes / tinned tomatoes and salt. 
  • Cook this on high heat till all the tomatoes look mashed stirring it once in 10 min.
  • Add tamarind extract, cook it for 10 min now add the base powder and fried garlic, cook for 10 more min. 
  • The tomatoes tend to splash up while boiling so keep away from the vessel while mixing. The mixture would be light maroon in color.
  • Cool this to room temperature and store it in air tight container. Keep it refrigerated and would be good to use for 2-3 months. I put it into many small bottels and put them in fridge.
Bottled Tomato Pickle
Note : The shelf life is more if you fry it for longer time.  Do not use wet spoon to serve these as it would spoil the pickle
Garlic is optional - Garlic actually tastes great with the pickle
