Navratra Marwari Food – Tamater ki launji

Marwari fasting menus contain no onion garlic and no cereal. All food is phalahari and cooked with sendha namak (rock salt).


  • Tomatoes – 8 medium
  • Desi ghee – 2 tbsp
  • Cumin seed – ½ tsp
  • Red chilli powder – 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder – ½ tsp
  • Sugar – 5 tsp
  • Sendha namak (rock salt) to taste


  • Wash and cut tomatoes into wedges.
  • Wash and slit green chillies.
  • Heat ghee to a smoking point and add cumin seeds.
  • Cumin seeds when added to hot oil turn to a dark color immediately; this releases its flavour instantly.
  • Add all the spices, tomatoes, salt and sugar.
  • Stir nicely and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on high flame until the tomatoes are slightly tender.
  • Do not overcook as the curry may turn into a sauce.
  • Garnish with green chillies
