THAKALI THOKKU/ TOMATO DIP




A simple recipe for a quick side for dosas and idlis. Tomatoes are something that most of us have in our refrigerators all the time. So this recipe comes in very handy when the refrigerators have been wiped out clean.......:)

Absolutely kid - friendly! Just adjust the chilies according to your preferred spice level. The mint leaves give you that little zing and freshness...But if you dont have it...dont worry!
