Thakkali Aviyal (kerala Style Tomato Aviyal)

This is a typical Kerala style recipe served as a side dish for lunch. This is my mom's special recipe which in fact is handed down to her from my grandmother. I used to cook this for my colleagues and they loved it just like I do. Now, my husband is also a fan of this dish. It tastes best when served with Kerala style rice. You can also try it with roti.
