BIR Tomato Paste


Tomato puree on its own is too strong and thick to use in BIR cooking, conversely tinned tomatoes are a little too weak and not also suited as they don’t cook down quickly enough. When tomato paste is called for in a BIR recipe it is usually a cooked combination of both tomato puree and tinned tomatoes, this gives a great tasting tomato base to curries and speeds up the cooking process. Our BIR tomato paste does just that and is perfect for any aspiring BIR chef.
