Hare Tamatar Ki Sabzi

We had tons of tomatoes growing in our garden. Unfortunately, before they could ripen, they would get eaten up by slugs (I think). So with this batch, I decided to just pluck them raw and let them ripen on the counter. Meanwhile, a friend suggested making Hare Tamatar Ki Sabzi using these raw tomatoes.

I followed her recipe and in my opinion, the dish came out really well – spicy and tangy. The good thing about this recipe is you can easily substitute raw or green tomatoes with either apples or mangoes with similar results. Enjoy some warm rotis!
