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.

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.

6. Dunk the seasoning over the thakkali kuzhambu and serve with hot rice

Hey! Hi! Nice page you have here, including the photographs. Looks delicious!
I came across your blog when I was looking at my earlier blogpage (caniwrite.blogspot). I saw you commented on a couple of my posts then, but I must have missed yours, since I had shifted over to wordpress. Just thought I should return the effort you made. Am quite late, I know, but here's a start!:)

Whatever you want to post go ahead and post, daily recipe or non-daily ones.

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 🙂
