Tomato Perugu Pachadi/Thakkali Thayir Pachadi -Tomato in Yogurt Sauce

I like raitha as accompaniment for spicy foods like biriyani,kaara kulambhu varieties.So I try raitha with different veggies.

This one is different from other vegetable raitha,as it uses only onion and tomato.One of the quickest accompaniment needs 10 minutes to make.

The raitha pairs very well not only for spicy foods,also with parathas and rotis.Here I added some grated coconut as we like the flavor of coconut.Its pure optional.
