Beef madras and potato curry

Made with Mutti Whole peeled tomatoes

Generously fleshy and firm, Mutti peeled tomatoes have their skins removed and then they are immersed in a delicious, velvety passata. Processing and packaging all occur within 24 hours of harvesting to preserve the authentic taste of freshly picked tomatoes. They have many different uses in the kitchen and are perfect for traditional Mediterranean recipes.
