4tblsp oil

Step 1:


1. Cut the tomatoes into half and scoop out the seeds and juice. Apply little salt and oil to the
tomatoes and bake them in oven at 200 F for 3-5 mins. Remove from the oven and keep aside.
2. Add pinch of salt to the water and when its boiling add soya granules and cook for 5 mins.
After 10 mins drain out the water. Make sure you squeeze out all the excess water as you don't want any moisture in the soya granules.
3. Heat the oil in a pan, fry the onions, green chilles and curry leaves. When the onions turn into light golden brown, add ginger garlic paste and fry for a min. Now add the boiled soya granules, salt and tumeric powder and mix well. Fry in a medium flame for 5mins. Now finally add the amchur/lime juice, garammasala powder and chopped corriander leaves and mix well.
4. Now stuff the soya mixture into tomatoes and keep aside. Now your stuffing is ready.

Step 2:
1. Heat the oil in heavy bottomed vessel. Fry whole garam masala for 30 sec. Now add onion
paste and fry, until raw smell disappears. When the onion paste turns into light golden brown, add ginger garlic paste and rough paste of greenchilles. Fry for a min.
2. Now add khuskhus and dry coconut paste and fry for a min. Add all the remaining powders except garam masala and fry for another 3mins. Keep stirring continously. If the gravy sticks too much to the bottom add a very little quantity of water. Now add the tomato purey and cook untill raw smell disappers. When oil leaves on edges, add sour cream and stir continouly for 3 more mins. Add the seasonings (salt to taste and 2 tsps of red chilly powder).
3. Now add 3/4th cup of water to the fried paste and bring to boil. Continue the
boiling for another 3-4mins. Check the seasonings. Now put the stuffed soya tomato carefully
and cook in a medium lower flame for 5-10mins. (Do not stir with spoon and do not cover with
lid). When gravy thickens turn off the flame.

Shifting to serving dish:
First, take out the stuffed tomatoes carefully into a plate. Pour the gravy into serving dish
and replace the stuffed tomatos carefully into the dish. Garnish with Onion slices, greenchilles
and corriander leaves.

1 Both the steps can be prepared parallel.
2 Baking the tomatoes in the oven is optional . You can cook them along with the stuffing. The
cooking time and water measurement should be increased as necessary.
3 Do not stir or cover with the lid after stuffed tomatoes are dropped into the gravy.
4 If you don't want to use Soya granules, you can always substitute with grated paneer, cooked vegetables (carrot,beans,potato, peas) etc.
