Tomato Pickle or this Andhra Tomato Pachadi makes an excellent chutney to be served for Idlies or Dosas. This is the latest addiction at home and have already made it couple of times. This gets served for every tiffin dish that gets served.
Chutneys in the morning is always Peanut Chutney. So adding this to the plate makes a good change as well. Did you notice the bottle I have captured? Well this came to the brim and its almost getting over and I finally decided I must capture before it gets completed.
I have hardly been cooking anything other than the regular meals. Work has been hectic plus the blog migration seem to take forever. I am hoping the initial makeover gets done by next week. Until then these sporatic posts will make presence.
As I have been skipping the blogging marathon, decided I must at least make it to the Cooking with Cookbook Challenge. This recipe comes from Amma's Dairy.
