Andhra Tomato Pickle Recipe | Thakkali Oorugai | Easy Pickle Recipes

Tomato pickle or Thakkali Urugai – An easy, quick and instant pickle recipe made using ripe tomatoes. This tomato pickle tastes good with most breakfasts like idli, dosa, paratha, upma, adai, and especially with plain hot rice and huge dollop of ghee.  This is not a traditional recipe, but is a good variation of the usual tomato achar and is spicy and tangy.
