Tomato gotsu recipe| Thakkali kichidi |side dish for idli dosa

Thakkali kichidi | tomato gotsu, a simple side dish for idli| dosa, recipe with video. I recently heard about this recipe of Thakkali kichidi from my friend, during our morning walk. She was telling that her daughter loves this a lot and she make s this very often. I wanted to try this at home and made this today and served with dosa. It was tasty and quite different from our usual chutneys. She calls it as thakkali kichidi, you can name it as tomato gotsu, or tomato chutney.. Give your own name, but trust me, the gravy tasted so yummy with dosa. I am sure it will be tasty with idli, pongal and even chapathi poori too.
Later i had some left over gotsu with curd rice and it tasted very well. A simple side dish using tomato, goes well with everything. Try this simple recipe at home and let me know how it turns out.
