Cant thank nisa homey enough because it is from her site I learned to make tomato sauce and also learnt that it was this simple.
Just like her daughter, my daughter is also a great fan of tomato sauce. She used to grab those little tomato ketchup sachets you get along with the chicken, at the fried chicken shop. And I used to get worried.... the way she had them.
But not any more...
I made my own Tomato sauce....Hurray !!! and to know it was this simple ...!!!
She loved it soo much ..Now mom and daughter are really happy ..:)
Here is the link to the original recipe Original recipe at Cooking is easy by NisaHomey
Tomato 1.2 kg
Onion 1 medium
Garlic cloves 4
Sugar 2 tbsp
Salt as required
For the Spice Bag
Cinnamon Stick 1 "
Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp
Pepper Corns 1 tsp
Vinegar 1/4 cup (I reduced the volume, orginal recipe says 1/2 cup)
Wash and chop the tomatoes, garlic and onions. Put them al in a pressure cooker and do 2 whistles. Allow to completely cool. Put this in the mixie and grind it for 30 sec and pass it through a sieve in to a vessel. Add sugar, salt and vinegar.
Add the spice bag also. This is nothing but a neat and clean cotton cloth to tie up all the given masalas. This is to be dumped in the sauce while you cook it. Put on finre. Simmer it and its better to stir it continuously til the sauce thickens.
Voila ! Your tomato sauce is ready...! Enjoy with samosas, bread rolls, chapatys...
