TOMATO SWEET PACHADI RECIPE

Tomato sweet pachadi | Thakkali sweet pachadi | Popular Tamil brahmin wedding style thakkali pachadi recipe – Kalyana sweet pachadi recipe with full video and step by step instructions.

Thakkali sweet pachadi is mom’s signature dish and amma makes it quite often during our childhood days. It is a very easy recipe and with few ingredients. If you have attended any Tamil Brahmin weddings, next to payasam and thayir pachadi, this sweet pachadi will be served. Instead of this, we make fruit pachadi or sweet kosumalli too. I am not a big fan of this thakkali jam, as we call it, but later after marriage started liking it.

Though I have posted this in Jeyashri’s Kitchen many years back, recently I made this pachadi for an ayush homam function of a friend’s daughter here. I felt sweet pachadi was missing from the menu and so made it as a surprise to the host. It was a super hit among all our friends. Since everyone asked for the recipe I thought I will make it again and update this post with a full video. Even while making for the festival I thought I will take a video but since it was the bulk quantity I know it would be time-consuming and so didn’t attempt to do it.

You can use nattu thakkali and bangolore thakkali in equal quantitates for making this Sweet pachadi.

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.

Reply
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
