Nutrition and you says:
 
Tomatillo or tomate is a small spherical shaped berry of tomato family used as vegetable. It was originated in Mexico and was cultivated by the Aztecs centuries before the Spanish explorers introduced it elsewhere. Tomatillos are low in calories. 100 g of berries provide just 32 calories. On comparison basis, they contain slightly more calories, fat, and protein than tomatoes. (100 g tomato has 18 calories). However, they have good amounts of many health benefiting plant nutrients such as dietary fiber, minerals, anti-oxidants and vitamins.
