Tomato Pickle Recipe -- How to make Tomato Pickle

Hi all,
Today I am going to give how to make tomato pickle recipe. This is the season for Tomatoes. We get fresh and fully ripen and also raw tomatoes abundantly in the local market. So I prefer to make every possible dish with tomatoes like Tomato Rice, Tomato Dosa, Tomato sauce/KetchUp, Tomato Pachadi, Tomato Dal of course and for more tomato varieties click on this page. Now, coming to this recipe, it is pickle which can be stored for at least three to four months. During my childhood my mother used to make it and keep it for year long also. When we don't have a mood to make any chutney for dosa or idli, it come in handy, just mix some pickle in curd and add some chopped onions, it tastes good. Very simple and easy to make, it can be made even in non-season also, but those tomatoes get very less juice. So it may not store for a long, we have consume it within a week or so. But the pickle made during this season lasts for 3 to 4 months.

  4. This process would ease lot of water or juice from the tomatoes.
  5. On the second day, squeeze out the water and put them in a mixer grinder. Keep the water for further use.
  6. Just pulse it or grind it. But do not grind it too much. To retain the tomato pieces just pulse or whip it for twice or thrice.

  9. When they start spluttering add turmeric powder, salt to taste and red chilli powder too it.

  11. Then immediately add the grounded tomato pickle to it.
  12. Boil it in low flame till the oil separates. This may take some 30 to 45 minutes.
  13. Keep a watch on the pickle, stir it ocassionally.
