Tomato Pachadi

This time I chose Tomato Pachadi from My Kitchen Trials hosted by Raajani, under this recipe, we cooked tomatoes with sugar and nuts. Mostly pachadi are savoury in taste as my knowledge but this time we made completely sweet in taste. It’s just like jam or spread. You can spread this pachadi on bread and prantha. I serve this pickle with Chop Chop Chapati.
Pachadi refers to a traditional South Indian side-dish. Broadly translated, it refers to food which has been pounded. The definition of the word 'Pachadi' is different among different South Indian regions. While in Kerala and Tamil Nadu, pachadi is a side-dish curry similar to the north Indian Raita, in Andhra Pradesh, pachadi is a fresh pickle and has very low shelf life, a maximum of two or three days. It is made of fresh vegetables and is served as an accompaniment for rice, snacks like idli, dosa, and pesarattu. Many kinds of vegetables are included. In the states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu, pachadi is eaten fresh and typically made of finely chopped and boiled vegetables with coconut, green or red chillies and tempered in oil with mustard seeds, ginger and curry leaves. Pachadi is commonly eaten with rice and a lentil curry.
