Tam Brahm Style Thakkali Sweet Pachadi | Tomato Sweet Pachadi | Tomato Sweet Pachadi using Jaggery| Gluten Free Recipe

Tomato Sweet Pachadi

Hi Supermoms,

If you have attended Tam Brahm marriages or special functions , you would have tasted this delicious fruit pachadi. Mainly tomatoes  and refined sugar are used in this preparation. But as I have reduced the usage of refined sugar for my family,  I have substituted it with Palm Jaggery /Karupatti and hence the darker colour . 

You can add dates and dry fruits of your choice to make this pachadi more rich. Half teaspoon of ghee to fry the tomatoes adds flavour to the pachadi, but if you are vegan, you can substitute it with oil. 

There are different methods to make this pachadi. I shall be sharing another version soon. You can even serve this as a side to poori/puri and chapathi.
