Tomato Pachadi

Tomato Pachadi

A pachadi is a South Indian dish that falls somewhere between curry, salad, and condiment. This one is more like a chutney and goes well with the rice and dal. Fire-roasted tomatoes give the dish some smokiness. There's a bit of heat from the chiles, but the main flavors are sweet from the coconut and sugar and sour-cool from the yogurt.
