As a kid i loved this chaaru, used to cherish the taste of the sour and tangy tomatoes with a hint of spice and sugar… Today being a slow Friday, made a Pachi Koora and Tamato Chaaru with Brown Rice for Lunch…Very rarely i get cook a full lunch on a weekday…Hope you all experience the joy of these tastes!
