“Serve this as part of an Indian dinner or as a vegetarian main course with rice. It is not easy to buy green tomatoes here, I have once tried to make this with red tomatoes, don't bother it will turn into a pulp, you want the tomatoes still in a chunky state when cooked. To my taste buds this is hot and spicy, adjust the heat to your own preference”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash and quarter the tomatoes, if they are very large, halve the quarters again.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan; add the fenugreek and cumin seeds.
  3. When they start to crackle add the tomatoes and green chilies, fry this for 2 minutes.
  4. Add everything else except the garlic, stir, cover and cook for approx 6 minutes.
  5. Uncover, add the garlic, turn up the heat and stir fry for 2/3 minutes, you will see that the oil which was separating first will now blend and make it more saucy together with the juices from the tomatoes.
