Tomato (Thakkali) Juice

Tomato_Thakkali_Juice_1 Tomato is known for its anti-oxidant property and is rich in vitamins. Raw tomato is good for health than the cooked one. While following a diet plan, it is better to drink tomato juice to remain energetic. I regularly use tomato in salad and when tomato is available cheap in the market, I prefer to make tomato juice often. Adding ginger and pepper in tomato juice  improves the taste.

Tomato is known as Thakkali in Tamil and as Tomatar in Hindi.
