Tomato Perugu Pachadi/Tomato Curd Chutney

imageTomato perugu pachadi

Tomato perugu pachadi is authentic Andhra recipe. This is no onion no garlic recipe, so it can be served during vrat or festive days. This is very easy to prepare. The pachadi is prepared with fresh ripe tomatoes, fresh curd along with chillies and coriander. The tomato perugu pachadi is a blend of all flavours. The pachadi tastes best when served with idly as an accompaniment. If you are bored with regular chutneys, definitely this one would be an amazing accompaniment for South Indian breakfasts like idly/dosa/punugulu etc. The leftover pachadi can be eaten along with rice. Here I present flavourful tomato perugu pachadi to relish. Njoy Cooking, Serving n Savoring!
