Tomato Sweet Pachadi

Tomato Sweet Pachadi recipe with step-by-step photos. This healthy and nutritious sweet is served in Tamil Brahmin weddings and functions. Usually, tomato sweet pachadi is prepared with white sugar. For a change, I used jaggery and beetroot to give it a healthy and flavorful twist. It takes more time like 35 to 40 mins to get the right consistency, but it is worth it because the sweet and tangy taste of this pachadi is simply amazing. Kids are sure to love this sweet pachadi too. You can even serve it with bread toast in your breakfast. So friends, try this healthy tomato sweet pachadi and share your comments!

Furthermore, I would like to give some of my suggestions for making this tomato sweet pachadi. Traditionally, it is prepared by using tomatoes and white sugar. You can add 1&1/4 cups of sugar for 600 grams of tomatoes. Chop tomatoes into small pieces. Heat a heavy-bottomed pan, add sugar along with 1/4 cup of water. When the sugar melts, add chopped tomatoes, mix well. Keep this in a low heat and stir continuously for 40 to 45 mins. to reach the pachadi consistency. But I used only 1/3 cup of jaggery and beetroot for healthier.
