Definition

Hindi for tomato. It is used to describe delicate and snooty ladies who tend to be fussy about the smallest of things, drink only bottled mineral water and speak hindi with a strange accent making it sound like it's a foreign language to them (purposely or because they only use it with the help)
Made popular by an old Coca cola ad staring Amir Khan and Preity Zinta, in which Amir Khan asks "Mooli ke khet me tamatar kitho?"

Usage

She's such a tamatar, she refused to eat at the road side dhaba
