Tomato Thokku/ Thakkali Thokku | Sidedish for Idly, Dosa, Chappati

After missing this delicious side dish day before yesterday was hoping to make it soon.Today had a wonderful lunch at my friends place and wanted to have something light for dinner.Thinking of light dinner there comes Idly(Rice cakes) on its way moreover wanted to finish my Idly batter soon.On deciding the main dish,thought to make the Tomato Thokku which goes along well with it. It is easy and taste different than the normal chutney's we make as we do not use coconut in it.

This side dish is made out of Tomatoes, onions and can be had with Idly, Dosa, Chappati.
