Tomato Kobbari Pachadi – Tomato Coconut Chutney



A perfect, quick, summer time chutney that makes use of farm fresh red tomatoes. Fresh coconut finds a place here but the pachadi highlights the predominate sweet-tart flavor of tomatoes and its gorgeous pink-orange color. Makes for a decent side with idli and dosa.
