Stir Fried Green Tomatoes Recipie - Indian Style

As you know I am in tomato heaven now a days So I am gonna show you today How to make Stir Fried Green Tomatoes in Indian style.

It goes well with Chapatis(Indian flatbread)and sabji/curry or goes well with cooked rice too.


2 tbsp. oil
2 medium hot pepper, sliced
Salt - per taste
1/2 tsp sugar/per taste
hard green tomatoes, cut in med. wedges
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 spoon Fenugreek
seasoning (I will show you how to make)
pinch of Asafoetida

Fenugreek seasoning

This is secret seasoning from both mine and hubby's family. You can make the seasoning once and store it in jar for later use. first take half cup(or whatever amount you want) of dried fenugreek and roast it in a pan. let it cool off and grind in mixer to make powder as shown in above pic.

Now How to make Stir fried green tomatoes...

Heat oil in skillet
add mustard seeds (If you do not have, cumin seeds will work too)
add pinch of Asafoetida(If you do not have, you can skip this step, though it brings great flavor)
add peppers, Stir-fry over medium heat until peppers are crisp-tender.
Add tomato wedges, salt, sugar and cook until partially cooked so it remains crispy.

Serve in plate and sprinkle it with secret fenugreek seasoning, if you want you can skip it and garnish it with chopped cilantro, but I like it better with seasoning.

for variation you can add different color bell peppers too.

P.S. This is the first time I have written a recipe, Pl. do let me know if something is not clear....
