Spring and Summer are when tomatoes are at their prime. This humble fruit has influenced our cooking in many ways. A hot plate of pasta dripping with tomato sauce, grated Parm and basil with a good glass of wine on a gloomy Fall/Autumn evening is bliss.
Creamy paneer makhani and naan after a couple of gin and tonic during white winter evenings evokes the festive spirit. Makhni is Indian tomato sauce that has spices and is finished with cream and butter.
