As I love this recipe so I tried with every form of tomatoes but the taste of fresh pulpy tomatoes is my all-time favorite. I have tried this recipe with cherry tomatoes, beefsteak tomatoes, and Italian plum Roma tomatoes. The roasted taste of Brandywine tomatoes is super awesome as it has a perfect balance of natural sugar. Whenever I am in hurry, prefer to use Hunt's fire roasted garlic flavor tomatoes. On a personal note, it's delicious and super quick to use with any recipe. Pair up well with my tandoori chicken.
