Fresh tomato pulp is an essential ingredient in many cuisines, including Indian . It is used in making varied dishes, ranging from soups and salsas to subzis and gravies.
It gives tanginess, volume and a luscious mouth-feel to any dish it is used in. Although tomato pulp is readily available in stores, homemade fresh tomato pulp has a more vibrant flavour.
It is also quite easy to make, and once you prepare a batch, you can deep-freeze it and use it for months!
We have used fresh tomato pulp in subzis like Subz Do Pyaza Malai Kofta and Paneer Tava Masala .
