Tomato Fry

If you love tomatoes, this just may be the one for you. It’s loaded with tomatoes and goes so well with plain white rice or chappati. This was another favourite dish of my friends in the UAE and they used to request for it frequently, together with the tofu sambal and paneer bhurji. It’s really quick and easy to prepare and should take about 20 minutes to cook it.

I learned how to make this dish long ago and have modified it over the years so it’s perfect now. Trust me when I say that you will love it too!
