Thakkali Gothsu

Tomato Gothsu is a very famous side dish for Venn Pongal. I made it for the first time with Venn Pongal, and the combination was fabulous. Here goes the recipe.


Onion - 100 grams
Tomato - 100 grams
Curry leaves and green chillies (optional)
Sambar powder - 3 tsp
Mustard 1/2 tsp
Tamarind - 10 grams
Oil - 10 grams
Salt - to taste


  • Chop the onions and Tomatoes into small pieces.
  • Heat oil in pan and add the Mustard.
  • When it sputters, add the onion, curry leaves and green chillies.
  • When the onion starts to cook, add the tomatoes. Cook till it is wilted.
  • Add sambar powder and tamarind and some water and boil.
  • If it is too watery, you can add some rice flour to thicken it. I did not add any.

Thakkali Gothsu is ready!! This also goes with idlis and dosas.
