How to make Thakkali Kai/Green Tomato Chutney
One of the perks of summer is; you can have your very own vegetable garden. If you have a green thumb, that is! If not, you need to have really nice in-laws like mine; who are all thumbs, that are green too :) You know where I'm going with this, by now. While my in-laws visited us last summer, they started a vegetable garden & tomatoes were top on the list of must have's. Eventually, when summer ended; there were quite a few tomatoes that were unripe & didn't have anymore favorable conditions to ripen either. After waiting for a few weeks - I finally concluded that, it's time for me to use those green tomatoes and decided to make a Thuvayal/Chutney this time. Its a sour & spicy chutney that goes great with your Idli, Uthappam, savory Kuzhi Paniyaram, Rawa Pongal, Masala Dosa & Bonda.
