Microwave – Sweet Tomato Pachadi

The second dish that I am preparing for the BM is sweet tomato pachadi which can be done within 15 minutes actually :-) :-) Its a two ingredient recipe. All you need is ripe tomatoes and sugar thats all. Usually for Tamil New year and Ugadi, we prepare something sweet and sour. Usually it will be the Raw Mango Pachadi. Initially it was difficult for me to find raw mangoes and preparing that on a busy week day morning was difficult also. That’s when my MIL suggested this. Instead of mango pachadi, I started preparing this on week days for prasadam. This is a great rice accompaniment also.

Ingredients:

  • Tomato – 3 (finely chopped)
  • Sugar – 3 tbsps (adjust according to taste)

Steps:

  • In a microwave safe bowl, add the finely chopped tomatoes and microwave them for 1 minute.
  • Take it out and mash it and add sugar and mix well.

  • Basically you need to microwave till the tomatoes are soft and mushy. It took me 6 minutes for this pachadi.

Notes:

  • Depending upon the microwave the time may vary. As I mentioned you have to microwave till the tomatoes blends together and becomes soft and mushy. 
  • Make sure you stir for every 2 to 3 minutes.
  • You can cook for some more time until 90% of the water is absorbed and use it like a spread or jam. :-)
