This Thakkalu Kuzhambu or Tomato Saar Recipe is as delicious as it is simple. I love anything tomato-flavoured and especially when it’s kuzhambu with coconut ground in it, it’s extra special for me. This Tomato Kulambu goes great with rice and some chips. You can add a dry vegetable curry on the side, like a betroot thoran or a beans mezhukkupuratti which would just take your meal to the next level.
So now let’s check out how to make Thakkali Kuzhambu using this easy recipe from Arch.
Now onto the Tomato Saar Recipe.
Thakkali Kuzhambu | Tomato Saar Recipe
Recipe source: Arch
4 ripe tomatoes
3-4 green chillies
1 cup grated coconut
A few curry leaves
1 red chilli
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
A pinch of hing / asafoetida
1.5 tsp salt
2 tbsp grated jaggery
How to make Thakkali Kuzhambu:
1. Blanch the tomatoes in hot water. Peel the skin off and keep aside to cool. Reserve the water for later use.
2. Grind the green chillies, coconut, and tomatoes in a blender till smooth
3. Add the reserved water to the tomato-coconut paste and bring to boil in a pan.
4. Add salt and jaggery and cook down until desired consistency is reached. If the kuzhambu is too thick, you can add more water to begin with.
5. For tempering, heat oil in a small pan and add mustard seeds, broken red chilli, curry leaves and asafoetida.
6. Dunk the seasoning over the thakkali kuzhambu and serve with hot rice
Wat I feel is blogging every day recipes doesnt matter, u surely will have one variation shown in ur version which will be helpful for others.
I like the easy versions like marie biscuit dessets, gothuma roti, choco cookies, masala kulipaniyaram etc……and thats the reason why many recipes in my blog are from here.Infact many of my blogger/non-blogger friends even asked me Who is this Nags, so many of ur recipes are from hers?! 🙂
Yeah, these days hvent seen any comments from you……?! For the template and look change, u can do it lil by lil so that u dont feel the strain which is what I m doing right now 🙂
I just can drink that. Don't even want rice, i knwo greedy greddy i am. Me too looking to your new recipes.
I know exactly what you mean Nags, especially about that last bullet. I have completely stopped looking at my reader. I really want to get back into it though, as I enjoy browsing other blogs.
I try and post a lot of non-run of the mill recipes, but when I look through my stats, the traditional ones are the most popular, especially over time. So that means many people out there are searching for regular every day recipes. So my resolution is to post more of those 🙂
I understand what you are saying!Love the pictures 🙂
Awwww…I think everyone falls into a blogging rut (Spoken like a wise old sage blogger, and I'm not even a year old!) – but I hope you get your a$$ out of it soon! Because I lOVE your posts!!!!
AH.. the everyday stuff is what i like.. the party stuff is all the same every where.still go ahead, bring it on.
