Tomatoes Stuffed with Cottage Cheese

Around 2 years back, I had tasted a delicious dish of stuffed tomatoes, made the Maharashtrian way, by a colleague of mine. I’ve not been in touch with her so I have not been able to get that particular recipe. But the idea of stuffed tomato caught on to me, and I decided to make it my own way. I had some paneer at home and made a stuffing of the same. It turned out to be a delicious yet simple dish, retaining the original flavor of the tomato and cottage cheese.


  • 6 large firm tomatoes
  • 150 gm cottage cheese
  • A few sprigs of coriander/cilantro leaves (chopped)
  • Salt
  • 1 pinch turmeric powder
  • 2 tsp oil


  • Make a hole on top of each tomato and scoop out the seeds and keep it aside
  • In a bowl, mix cottage cheese, salt, turmeric and coriander leaves.
  • Fill the stuffing into each tomato
  • In a pan, heat the oil and place the tomatoes on it and cover the lid of the pan
  • Keep turning the tomatoes occasionally so that all sides cook evenly
  • Even the skin of the tomatoes gets crinkled, it’s an indication that they are done
  • Serve hot with chapatti/ rice

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Serves: 2
