Tomato thokku is my most favourite .When i got this recipe from my mum, was not confident enough of doing it. The recipe looks simple but it needs lot of patience while stirring.

Pickling Method:

Do the seasoning with mustard seeds, urad dhal and add asafoetida into it. Finally add the ground paste,salt and curry leaves into it . Close it with a tight lid. Keep stirring........Keep stirring............Keep on stirring...........Done!!!!!
