Everyone is very familiar with tomato and it is very attractive with red colour. Tomato contains vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin K. It also contains nutrients and anti-oxidants and it is very good to health. Tomato can help to reduce hyper tension, sugar and cholesterol. You can use tomato juice without its seeds on daily basis to get skin glow and ageing problems. It is cultivating in houses and we need not to take more care for this vegetable. It will be available in everywhere at any season. Its price will be changing day by day. It is very popular and using to make different vegetarian dishes. It is mainly using with vegetable masala curry, beef curry, chicken curry and fish dishes. Tomato dishes are really very tasty. Today I have made north Indians style sweet and spicy tomato stir fry. It is very tasty because it has the mixed taste of sour, sweet and spicy. To get more taste I used roasted dried red chilli paste. Its main ingredients are tomato and onion and its main flavour is cumin seeds powder. To get exact taste of all ingredients I used refined oil. I like this dish very much and I tasted it from restaurant first time and I tried it based on its taste and I got real taste of that stir fry. So I tried it so many times in my house and it is super combination with chapati. It is very good vegetarian recipe and it can use at any time and it is very easy and simple recipe.
