What is Tomato Puri?

Tomato Puri is a deep-fried Indian bread prepared with whole wheat flour, having the tanginess of tomatoes, which gives it a very distinct flavor. Tomato puri is a good break from the regular puri which is generally flavored with carom seeds, or spices so on. It is also liked by the kids because of the interesting hue it has. Tomato puri can be served for breakfast with pickle or can be a part of a lunch or dinner menu and can be served with any gravy. I plan to make this for Karwa Chauth this year and team it with no onion no garlic dum aloo Banarasi, along with some raita and dessert.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Tamatar ki Puri

I always have some homemade tomato puree in my freezer. In fact, there are a number of pastes and puree which are always there in my fridge. The preparation and cooking time of the dishes reduce considerably with these ingredients coming handy. Further puree and paste also improve the texture of the dishes. Let’s have a look at the ingredients required for Tamatar ki Puri recipe:

Whole Wheat Flour: I have used only atta or whole wheat flour for this poori recipe.

Tomato puree: As already mentioned I have used the homemade tomato puree to make tomato puri. You can also grind the tomatoes for this recipe but the results would differ. Further, the color of the poori won’t be this bright because my tomato puree has a secret ingredient that gives it that gorgeous red color.

Flavoring: I have not added any flavoring agent to the dough. You can flavor it with carom seeds, cumin seeds, fennel seeds or so. You can also add fresh ingredients such as coriander leaves, mint leaves, etc.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
