Meanwhile, place a frying pan over medium heat. Add the oil and start frying the battered tomatoes for about 2 minutes on each side (keep turning them).

Once the battered tomatoes are golden brown, remove them from the oil and place them on a kitchen towel or serviettes to drain extra or excess oil.

Serve with your favourite chutney or tomato sauce.
