Thakkali Pachadi (Tomato Raitha)

by Kamala on February 16, 2010


Tomato Raitha is a simple, easy to make tasty raitha. I prepare this as a side dish for any Veg Pulao or Biriyani. Curd based dishes use less spices and are good for digestion.


  • Fresh curd – 1 cupThakkali_Pachadi_Tomato_Raitha_1
