well, to be honest, i am a huge fan of pickle recipes and i cannot remember a day or a meal without it. yet, i generally do not prepare these indian pickle recipes at home because of the complexity and hassle involved with this recipe. however, after moving to australia, i had to prepare my own pickle recipes. i do get a lot of types of pickle recipes here in indian grocery stores, but i have a lot of issues with them. firstly, the type of oil used in it and the odour it infuses into the pickle. it could be a stale oil or perhaps some weird combination of oil. secondly, the spice and the salt level do not match my taste buds. it could be either too salty or it could be very spicy. lastly, if i like one particular brand and type of pickle, it may not necessarily be available next time. hence these reasons, i have started to prepare my own pickle recipes and tomato pickle is one of them.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the thakkali thokku. firstly, i would strongly recommend using ripe and juicy tomatoes for any tomato-based chutney or pickle recipes. it gives a strong bright red colour to the final end product and also gives a hint of sweetness to it. secondly, there are different types of pickle masala you may prepare or perhaps you could get it from the grocery shop. you may very well add to this as per your preference to get the desired taste and spice. also, you may add vinegar in place of tamarind pulp as an alternative. lastly, due to the way it is prepared, it has a long shelf life for this pickle. yet you may need to take extra precautionary steps like a dry spoon, no moisture and store in a dry place.
