Tomato/Thakkali Thokku or Pickle

Tomato/Thakkali thokku  or pickle is one of my favourites..My mom always bribes me with this thooku to get any work done..Just irressistible..sometimes I feel like diving into the tomato thokku swimming pool..its that addictive and can be done very very easily..So lets take a dive into the thakkali thokku now..
Any type of tomatoes will be good for this recipe.But I prefer grape tomatoes..very easy to cook..

Tomatoes - Grape Tomatoes - 1 small box
Urad Dal - 1tsp
Dry red chillies - 6(according to the spicy taste u need)
Fenugreek powder - just a pinch
Gingely oil - 4 tsp

How to cook:

First step:

--Put all the tomatoes in the blender - keep it aside

Second step:
--Heat 2tsp of oil and fry urad dal and red chillies..saute them well..then transfer it to the blender..and grind it along with the tomatoes
--Now take a deep bottomed pan and heat 3tsp of oil and add the grinded mixture..add salt and cover the lid for 3mins..
--Now open the lid and keep stirring continously until u see the oil separating from the thokku..
--once its all done.
--Heat 1/2 tsp of oil and add a pinch of asafoetida and add it to the tomato thokku and add a pinch of fenugreek powder (no need to fry this powder)

Tips :
--How to make fenugreek powder..
