Tomato pachadi (தக்காளிப் பச்சடி)

Tomato pachadi is the easiest raitha and it goes well with spicy mixed rice preparations. 

Ingredients:

Curds – half a tumbler or 100ml
Tomato, cut into small pieces – 1 no
Green chilli, small, chopped – 1 no
Salt – to taste
Oil – 1 teaspoon
Mustard seeds – ½ teaspoon
Asafoetida – a pinch
Curry leaves – a few

Tomato pachadi (தக்காளிப் பச்சடி)
Method: Beat the curds well. Add salt and asafoetida to beaten curds and mix well. Mix little salt to tomato pieces and allow it to stand for 5 minutes. Heat oil in a tadka pan (spice pan/தாளிக்கிற கரண்டி) and add mustard seeds. Once they start to sputter switch off the fire. Add seasoning and tomato pieces to the curds and mix well. Garnish with curry leaves. Pachadi can be served as an accompaniment to sambar rice or part of the feast menu.
