Green Tomato Upkari - Kaayi Tomato palya - Tangy Tasty Green Tomato sidedish

Tomatoes are one of the easiest and gratifying plants to grow - they are reasonably hardy - and you get the satisfaction of watching your efforts frutify :-) Not to mention the terrific stress busting side effects. So here goes...
