Tomato Thokku with Garlic-Easy Thakkali Thokku Recipe

Tomato thokku is a versatile dish which goes well with idli, dosa, chapati, paratha, curd rice, upma and many more dishes. Mixed with hot steamed rice, topped with a tsp of sesame seed oil, it tastes awesome. It can be used as a spread for bread toast and sandwiches. You can take this even during travel as it does not get spoiled for 2 days at room temperature. It comes handy when you don't find time to cook or not in a mood to cook. I have already shared tomato thokku without garlic, using blanching method. In this we grind the tomatoes raw. Today we will learn how to make tomato thokku with garlic following this easy method with step wise pictures and video.

   Ingredients needed

   Tomato - 1 kg ripe ones
   Garlic - 7-8 cloves
   Tamarind - small gooseberry sized ball
   Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
   Chilli powder - 1 1/2 tbsp
   Salt - 1 tbsp or as needed
   Roasted fenugreek powder - 1/2 tsp

   For the seasoning

   Oil - 1/3 + 1 tbsp cup
   Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
   Hing/asafoetida - 1 tsp



Preparations 

Soak tamarind in 2-3 tbsp of hot water. Extract thick juice and discard the pulp.

Roast fenugreek seeds on medium heat until you get a nice aroma. Leave it to cool, then powder it. (Usually I roast and powder 1/4 cup fenugreek seeds and store it. I use it when making pickles or thokku.)

Remove the skin of garlic, crush it and keep it aside.

Buy ripe tomatoes for making thokku. You can use a mix of Bangalore and country tomatoes (nattu thakkali). Wash tomatoes well and wipe it dry.

Cut the tomatoes roughly and blend it to a smooth puree.

Cook covered on medium heat and saute at regular intervals. (Be cautious as when it boils, it splutters a lot and might scald your hands. So reduce the heat to low before opening the lid to stir).

Cook on medium heat until all the water evaporates and oil separates.

Shelf life and Storage 

Once it cools completely, store it in a glass bottle in the refrigerator.

It keeps well for 20 days, if kept in the refrigerator. Take needed quantity in a small cup everyday rather than taking the whole bottle outside. Use dry spoon. If you follow all these tips, it will stay good for 20 days.
