Stuffed Tomato Recipe (Bharwa Tamatar)

stuffed tomato

Yesterday I cooked stuffed tomato or bharwa tamatar for dinner. I used paneer for stuffing tomato but you can also use paneer with boiled and mashed potato for this recipe. Stuffed tomato is a very delicious side with rotis. Try it to believe it. What’s more, it can be made quickly if you are entertaining some guests.
Recipe of stuffed tomato
5-6 medium tomatoes (tamatar)
100 gms paneer (cottage cheese) - crumbled
1 inch piece ginger- grated
1 onion- chopped
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp kasoori methi (dry fenugreek leaves)
2+2 tsp oil
Chopped coriander leaves
hollowed tomatoes

1. Wash tomatoes and pat dry. Remove top of the tomato like a cap and keep aside.
2. Scoop out pulp of the tamatar and chop the edible portion of the caps. Set aside.
3. Heat 2 tsp oil in a pan and add cumin seeds. When they change color, add onion and ginger. Sauté till light brown.
4. Add pulp and chopped caps of tomato. Add salt, red chilli powder and garam masala. Cook till pulp turns dry.
5. Add paneer and kasoori methi. Cook, mixing, for 1 minute. Remove from fire and let the paneer masala cool.
6. Preheat oven at 180 degree C. Stuff this paneer mixture inside the hollow tomato. Arrange the stuffed tomato on a greased baking tray.
7. Pour 2 tsp oil mixed with 1/4 tsp salt on all the tomatoes. Bake at 180 degree C for 30-35 minutes or till tomato turn soft. Take out stuffed tomato in a serving bowl and garnish with coriander leaves.
