TOMATO SWEET PACHADI RECIPE
    Tomato Sweet Pachadi is my mom’s signature dish and it is liked by everybody at my place including kids. This tomato pachadi is generally served in tamil brahmin weddings and functions. We used to call this as tomato jam. Since i am not a big fan of sweets , i never attempted to try this at home. During my visit to India few weeks back, my mom made this and i clicked the pictures and sharing the recipe with you.
Before going to the recipe I thank all my fellow blogger friends for visiting my space and commenting on my posts. I missed many wonderful posts and will catch up all at the earliest.

INGREDIENTS:

TOMATO 12 NO
SUGAR 2 AND 1/2 CUP
WATER 1/2 CUP
DATES(DESEEDED) 4-5 NO
RAISINS 1 TBLSP
CASHEWNUTS 1-2 TBLSP
GHEE 2 TSP

tomato sweet pachadi

  • Wash and chop the tomato into small pieces.
  • In a heavy bottomed vessel ( my mom used pressure cooker), add sugar along with the water.

  • Add the chopped tomato to the sugar and stir well.
  • Do not add any water,after adding tomatoes, as the tomatoes will ooze out water.
  • Keep this in a medium low flame and stir continuously.
  • The process will take 35- 45 minutes to reach the pachadi consistency.

  • Fry the dates, cashew nuts, raisins separately in ghee and add to the pachadi.
  • Mix well.Serve warm or chilled.

How long does it stay gud? After adding sugar and water, should we have to wait till it melts or boil or any other consistency..? Pls clarify.

jeyashri suresh March 13, 2014 - 6:59 am

This stays good for for 10 days. You need to keep in the refrigerator. After adding sugar and water, you just keep stiring until u reach the pachadi consistency
