    From my experience

    Tomatoes, cilantro, mint - when thawed will give out water and have to be used as chutney, or blended into gravies.
    Tomatoes cannot be used for salad, and cilantro cannot be used for garnishing.

    I always freeze for about 1-2 months. Never tried for longer.

    Here are some links for a few tips on freezing
    Time management - cooking, cleaning, and exercise

    Bindi - good to cut and then freeze. When cooking it will give out more water than fresh. So we have to just let most of the water evaporate before tossing it with the ladle. Else, bindi will break apart and turn mushy.

    I haven't tried to freeze Tomatoes, mint & cilantro.
    Yes, I have cut the veggies and freeze them. I have these reusable bags from amazon, that I use. It's very helpful to store all sorts of veggies. The longevity of the veggies are very fresh.
    Right now I have cut 2 bags of okra in the refrigerator.
    In times like now- I have cut ample veggies, use it first.

    I like these freezer bags. At the time I wrote the articles these bags were not there or were unknown to me.

    Dont cut onions, I read somewhere that cut onions are bad to be cooked. I peel the skin and keep it in the freeze bags.

    I peel 2 or 3 garlic pods and put it in the same freezer bag with onion. If you go to costco you can fond peeled garlic by lbs.
