What is Egg Podimas Tomato Recipe?

Egg Podimas with Tomato is a simple recipe where tomatoes are added along with the usual Egg Podimas or muttai poriyal for a tangy taste.

If you need a tangy taste on top of the normal muttai poriyal /egg podimas, this is the one to try.

The tanginess of the tomato depends on what type of Tomato you use.

Usually, I prefer adding the hybrid or Bangalore Tomato variety rather than the country or naatu Tomato variety. The latter one adds more sourness/tanginess to the dish.

So choose the right Tomato according to your need.

This recipe can be prepared in less than 5 minutes.

There are other variations of the Egg Podimas like:
