In the book Vegetarian Fare at Taj there are delicious pictures some of them are doable at home some need a lot of thought process for substitutes but the pictures are wow so very delicious! One such a dish is Kacche Pakke Tamatar!
The others that I have already attempted are VendakaiMelugu Peretti, Waal/Long Beans in Butter Garlic Sauce, Wok Fried Lotus Stemsand Assorted Veggies in Honey Chilli Sauce, Zunka Bhakar , Idli~ Old Wine in a New Bottle! Slowly plan to attempt them all.
I could not get kacche cherry tamatar, which is raw cherry tomatoes and so I made it as a pakke pakke tamatar. You could use 1 cup of raw cherry and 1 cup of ripe tomatoes.
Let’s get down straight to the recipe
