Tomato Pickle

Few weeks back when Indira asked about our responsibility towards our favourite blogger, the first person to come to my mind was Saffron Hut. Hers was the one of the blogs I follow regularly for more than a year now. She has everything one can ask for in a blog, interesting and humorous posts (remember smelly cat), dependable recipes (it is from her I learnt to freeze rotis) and beautiful presentation. She is one of my inspirations to write a blog of my own. It is sad that she doesn’t blog that often as she used to, which, I inferred, is due to her health issues. I sincerely wish SH that she gets better and come back to us, the food blogging community.

For this month’s MBP, themed Preserve it, hosted by Coffee, I am made her tomato pickle. It is easy to prepare, tasty and goes well with almost anything. I have made this pickle for quite sometimes now and I am happy the way it is, no changes at all. You can find the recipe aesthetically written in her blog. I am not even going to try match that :).

Tomato Pickle

Tomato pickle served with kuzhi paniyaaram.

Kuzhi paniyaaram is made with left-over idli batter, onion, green chillies, curry leaves and asafoetida. For other recipes and recommendations on the pan, visit Nupur and Indira.

Lovely entry Suganya. Viji

Archana, mama of twins said...

Suganya- your photos are so stunning. I want to reach in and eat your gulliappams (thats what we call them!)

I miss SH too! She was one of the first food blogs I came across and I love her Mex Chaat!

bee said...

those paniyarams were made in an iron pan, right? how do you get them unstuck without using a barrel of oil? they look yum.

Suganya said...

Tee, yes, it was a perfect combo. We had it over tea.

Bhags, Go ahead! it tastes great with almost anything.

Archana, do try it.

Thanks Viji.

Archana, Thank you. Gulliappam sounds cute :)

Bee, I use non-stick kuzhi-appa kadai. I brush them with oil before every batch. Though it is said cast iron pans will work as good as non-stick ones with regular use, am not lucky in that regard. So I still have some non-stick pans like this.
