Stuffed tomatoes

Stuffed tomatoes... the name makes my mouth water. Saw a chef making this on tv yesterday and i just got reminded of how much i wanted to have it. Its really a very long time since i had it... sure more  than 2 yrs :)  Everybody has their own liking for stuffing, below is my simple way. The spice level varies to my mood ;)

Serves... 2 ppl 
Serve option... as an appetizer, warm

This is what u'll need....

Tomatoes 2 small
Chopped onions 3 tbspn
Green chillies 2 chopped
Cooked spinach less than 1/4 cup
Cooked peas 1/4 cup
Beaten rice handful
Chopped coriander 2 tbspn
Grated ginger 1/2 tspn
Grated garlic 1 tspn
Lemon zest 1/2 tspn
Salt to taste
Red chilli powder 1 tspn(optional)
Garam  masala  1/4 tspn
Bread crumbs 1/4 cup
Oil 2 tbspn

Here is the stir....
  • Cut each tomato lengthwise and scoop out the pulp
  • In a small bowl mix oil, 1 tspn grated garlic, salt, red chilli powder. Toss in the tomatoes and coat it well. Keep it aside
  • Mix all remaining ingredients except 2 tbspn bread crumbs and oil. Make it into a lumpy dough. You can use potatoes instead of beaten rice too
  • Fill the tomato cups with stuffing and top it with bread crumbs. There will be leftover oil from the tomatoes, keep it for now
  • Arrange all the filled cup in a baking lined with aluminium oil. Drizzle the seasoned oil on top
  • Bake this in a 375 degrees oven for about 20-25 mins
  • Serve it warm and enjoy
