I am always excited to work with seasonal produce as you do not get to work with such ingredients frequently. With the winters currently on in Mumbai, the market place is brimming with some beautiful vegetables and fruits. This season what caught my attention were the GREEN TOMATOES. These are tomatoes picked from the vines while they are still not ripe. Hence in texture as well as in flavour they are very different from the regular, ripened, red tomatoes commonly used in the Indian kitchen.
Green tomatoes are extremely tart and have a very firm peel and texture. These properties lend their usage to various curries, stir-fries, chutneys as well as salads. However, the nip in the air always prompts me to indulge in delicious soups. So, I went ahead and made a green tomato soup with a very special ingredient that further elevated their flavour.
