Cooking has become so much easier since the day I started cooking in my wonderchef nutripot. I have been experimenting with many recipes and today I am posting an easy thokku with tomato. This spicy tomato thokku cooked in wonderchef nutripot is a very delicious pickle.
This thokku or pickle is based on tomato as the main ingredient. We also make thokku with raw mangoes, Shallots, Coriander, Cury leaves and lemon. Tomato thokku is always made by cooking the tomato with the necessary spices in its own juice. This thokku can be cooked in a stove top too. But I love to cook it in an electric pressure cooker reason being we do not have to babysit and keep stirring.

Here in this recipe, I have used the round tomatoes or naatu thakkali. I feel this type of tomatoes are tangier and are best suited for pickles. You can choose to use any variety of tomatoes though. The method of preparing this thokku is very simple. I have added all the ingredients to the pot of the nutripot. I have pressure cooked it for 10 minutes. Later sauteed it in the nutripot for 20 minutes to get a thick tasty and fiery red tomato thokku.
