This Tomato Relish is spicy, tangy and so full of flavor that explodes in your mouth. I love this relish. I recently made this for a gift basket order and it was a big hit.
Don’t you just love tradition!
This is my grandmother’s recipe (Thakali Thoku in Tamil).A favorite of mine and so she made it often. I remember her sitting on this high stool at the stove, stirring this big pot of tomato mixture, the wafting smells filling the entire house. I would run into the kitchen several times to sneak a taste. And now, I make it for my kids.
This is a great way to make tomatoes the star. And it goes with everything! Corn muffins, bread (all kinds including naan, roti, sourdough), on top of fish and chicken, with crepes. Everything!

This blog is about my often mad experiments in my kitchen, my favorite places and the lovely people I meet along the way. Let me take you on my rambles to find my roots!"
