Tomato Uragaya | Andhra Tomato Pickle

Tomato Uragaya

Tomato Uragaya is a typical Andhra Style Tomato Pickle, that is made frequently during summer, using the excess bounty of tomatoes we get. This pickle is supposed to be very spicy, but we made it using only half of the amount of red chillie powder, though it is still very delicious and can be used as a side dish for dosas or any tiffin.

I remember years back when we used to make pickles very frequently. However, now we no longer make it so often or it gets consumed much. We still have a bottle stocked most of the time. This is one such pickle that I try to stock as it makes a great side dish for tiffins.

Try this and you will love it.

  1. Whenever I see pickles , I feel like making them . I drool over them , but I have completely stopped eating them due to excess oil and salt .
    But right now I feel like eating that crunchy dosa and tomato pickle , looks so so good.

  2. Wow! 1 cup chilly powder for 1/2 kg tomatoes! This must be super spicy. I am just drooling looking at the pictures..

  3. looks like a flavourful pickle.. I have tasted many varieties of pickles. but, not tomato one yet. But, sometimes i do make instant tomato chutney

  4. A mouth watering tomato pickle. Some years back when I was staying in Bangalore my neighbour would always give me some of this pickle. It was very chilli but good with rice, rotis etc. I think I shall make it but definitely with less chilli powder 🙂

  5. Lovvve pickles valli! i literaly drool over them, tomato pickle looks lip-smakcing good! i dont mind a tsp of homemade pickle, definitely more healthy than the store-bought ones!!!
