Tomato stuffing

  1. Cut the top portion of the tomato and gently scoop out the pulp from inside the tomato. (NOTE: Don’t thrown the pulp, this will be used in the gravy). Keep the tomatoes aside.
  2. Grate the paneer (cottage cheese), cheese cube and boiled potato in a bowl.

  3. Add in the bowl the following -  Maggie masala, chat masala, coriander, finely chopped green chillies and salt as per taste

  4. Gently mix the whole thing together. Once mixed, stuff the tomatoes with the mixture.

  5. Take 2 teaspoon of oil in a shallow pan and heat the oil. Once heated, put the tomatoes in the pan. Gently toss then tomatoes fry until the skin becomes little loose.

  6. Once tender, take the tomatoes out from the pan and keep them aside.


  1. Make a paste of tomato pulp, chopped onion, cashew nuts, green chillies in a grinder.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a deep pan. Add the methi (fenugreek seeds) in the oil.
  3. Once the methi sputters, put the paste in #1 in the pan. Add ginger+garlic paste. Cook the in low flame.
  4. Once the masala  starts cooking, the oil will start separating. Add kitchen king masala, turmeric powder, chilli powder, sugar and salt.
