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.

What a fantastic paste this is . There's no point in trying to make it yourself , especially with the underlying flavours of ginger and garlic . A 5 star ingredient !

Bir tomato paste

Easy to use. Saves lengthy cooking of tomatoes. Tastes good. Only problem I have is that I freeze what’s left so it’s difficult to use only a little 5he next time.

Convenient and works

I have used this in lots of BIR recipes. Once open I freeze half tablespoons in ice cube trays that pop out easily. Helps me feel like I'm almost cooking from scratch while working full time. Saves me time and heat having it on hand.
