I was searching for green tomatoes in my place for quite a long time. I had lots of recipe ideas on my head using green tomatoes. Since i couldn't get my hands on those, those recipes were pending.
Spicy Mango Thokku
Punjabi Raw Mango Pickle
Sweet Mango Pickle
Andhra Mango Pickle
Instant Mango Pickle
Dried Mango Pickle
Finally few days back when i went to my mom's place, she handed me few green tomatoes which she bought from her veggie shop. I was happy to see those and immediately made these pickles.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
