Verusenaga (Peanut) Tomato Pachadi


Its the season for tomatoes and they are reasonably priced too. I had earlier blogged peanut tomato pachadi recipe. Today’s recipe is a variation which is a garlic-y amalgam of sorts with tart, nutty, spicy flavors making it a perfect start for the day’s first meal. One that is hard to resist with dosas and idlis.

    How do you manage to churn out recipes after recipes especially variations of the same kind as well.

    You seriously give me a complex yet you give me so many ideas and make my cooking life so easy.Thank You.

  2. Just had peanut chutney for dosa, hubby loves peanut..but I usually make only with chilies and tamarind. Tomato and peanut….interesting.. I am planning to try for tomorrow’s dinner.Thanks you for sharing…

  3. Hi Sailu,

    I am following your website from last one year and tried several recipes. I love cooking and your website has been a big help :). I will try this recipe. It looks very yummy.

    Have you ever thought about sharing your photo in your website ? I want to see you.

    Sruthi.

  4. Hi Sailu,

    Palli chutney is something my son likes a lot. Now, I need to introduce this version also, and see if he likes it. He is just 8 yrs old and very choosy abt food.

    And yes, as sruthi said, i too thought of asking you to upload ur pic….

    Thanks
    Lucky

  5. Dear Sailu,
    No words to express my thanks to you for sharing all your wonderful recipes. I am trying many of ur recipes and want to bake cakes also. The pictures are too tempting. If possible upload more vegetable curries of andhra style .

  6. Yum yum… My telangana neighbour, Anupama, introduced me to this chutney
    and since then it became a regular at our home. Just that
    I add raw garlic and jeera while grinding the chutney.
    She made dondakaya palli chutney also. She fried dondakayas untill soft
    and pretty much the same procedure. It goes well with rice. You
    might want to try? The pic is perfect as usual. Wonderful presentation.

  7. Dear Sailaja, the peanut-tomato Pachadi with the flavour of Garlic looks pretty interesting and a nice variation to the regular coconut, coriander or tomato-onion chutneys! Perfect on a idli-dosa morning .

    It is always a treat to come here. In the presentation of the recipes, there is a subtle touch of simplicity that appeals to the heart, thereby increasing the desire to scroll through more pages, each time bringing a smile to my lips. I find myself craving to taste the dishes you have captured on camera.

  8. Dear Sailu:

    The Peanut/Tomato chutney is very good idea. The recipe is also simple, with simple ingredients. I like peanuts and tomatoes. I am bit lazy to extract tamarind juice and pulp, so I would go and hunt for sour tamatoes to make my job easier, instead of working with sweet tomatoes. I have substituted other ingredients in my life like, lemon juice, amla powder, fresh tomatillo (very sour fruit/vegetable). This fruit/vegetable is not seen in India, but in the States, I have seen it and used it in the States. Garlic is also one of my favorite ingredient, so I will try your version of peanut chutney. Happy cooking.
