Tomato thokku or Thakkali thokku is a simple side dish that goes with chapathi, poori, idli, dosa and the list goes on…. It’s my favorite since child hood.

Tomato Pasta – Cheesy Tomato Pasta

February 2, 2017 Bachelor Friendly RecipesBreakfast/DinnerKids BayPasta / Pizza RecipesTomato  6 comments

I am a big fan of pasta & especially this Cheesy Tomato Pasta. There are many shapes of Pasta. I have tried many shapes and this Farfalle is my favourite. I usually make Tomato Pasta with homemade pasta sauce, but when not available I use tomato sauce and spice it up with seasoning just like I have done in the video. I should say this pasta tastes much better than the ones that we get in restaurants & pizza outlets. Especially here, it tastes totally bland. I had posted this recipe long back, now updated with new pics and video ๐Ÿ™‚

Tomato Rasam – Thakkali Rasam

January 28, 2016 Rasam VarietiesTamil New Year RecipesTomato  12 comments

Rasam is always a breeze to make. This Tomato Rasam is no exception to it. The quickest and the most favourite lunch menu for us would be rasam and potato fry. I normally do not store rasam powder as we prefer to have rasam with freshly ground powder. The freshly ground powder does add magic to the rasam. I just make sure to have some minor changes in my rasam powder every time I make it. This Tomato Rasam is also an easy, flavourful and quick rasam.

This is a simple pasta recipe. Tomato Pasta with fusili pasta.ย  I once had pasta in a restaurant, it was so bland and tasteless. So wanted to try on my own and came up with this easy recipe.
