Tasty food can be cooked without tomatoes
The price of tomatoes is still very high and is showing no signs of coming down.
Food experts say that there is no need to panic as tomatoes are not really a must in our food.
The main reason of adding tomatoes to food is to get the sour flavor. This can be achieved without using the tomato as well.
Sour or tangy flavor in food can come from other sources such as lemon, tamarind and mango powder (amchur). These have always been a part of the Indian cuisine and make food great.
The gravy can be cooked using onion with ginger-garlic paste and sourness can be added using tamarind or other sour foods.
