There is nothing more satisfying than cooking with vegetables grown in one’s own backyard. Today I used a few not so ripe orange tinge tomatoes from our vegetable garden to make a perfectly simple pachadi.
To make this deliciously tangy pachadi all you need are simple everyday ingredients like fresh firm tomatoes, coriander, green chillis, onion and the all important spice – cumin seeds. Ultimate in simplicity yet flavorful this chutney tastes best with idlis and dosas. The greenish shade of the pachadi is due to coriander which should not be overused and may play a dominant flavor but used subtly to harmonise with the tangy flavor of tomato.
