Most people like tomato achar/pickle with rice, our daily staple food. Some have very simple recipes while some like to add radish, fish or any other vegetables to go along with. And, what without the spices...it sure will be bland! Today, I am going to share the recipe I like most and hope you will too!
- Roma tomatoes: 3 (chopped)
- Yellow onion: 1 cup (diced/chopped)
- Ginger/Garlic: 2 tbsp (diced)
- Dried Anchovy: 1/2 cup
- Vegetable Oil: 2 tbsp (2)
- Salt, chili powder, turmeric powder, coriander and cumin powder to taste
- Garnish with Cilantro
- Cumin seeds: 1/2 tsp

Steps to follow
In a non-stick skillet, heat 2 tbsp of vegetable oil on a medium heat.
Add dried anchovy and fry until it's crisp. Set aside.
In the same skillet, add additional 2 tbsp of vegetable oil. Add 1/2 tsp cumin seeds.
When it's dark in color, add 1 cup of diced yellow onions and fry until it's golden brown.
Add spices and mix well.
Add chopped tomatoes and mix well until all the spices blend well.
You can cover with a lid and cook for few minutes until the tomatoes are cooked. Please make sure that you stir occasionally.
Once it's all cooked, add water and then fried anchovies and 2 tbsp diced Ginger/Garlic.
