Home Made Tomato Sauce

I came across the recipe at Nisa Homey's Cooking is easy.

My daughter is a great fan of tomato sauce. Shegrabs those little tomato ketchup sachets you get along with the chicken, at the fried chicken shop. I hate and worry too much when she has so much of them.
But not any more...
I made my own Tomato sauce....Hurray !!! and to know it was this simple ...!!!
She loved it so 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:

Cloves 3
Cardamoms 3
Cinnamon Stick 1 "
Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp
Pepper Corns 1 tsp
Vinegar 1/4 cup (I reduced the volume, original 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. Spice bag is 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 fire. Simmer it and its better to stir it continuously till the sauce thickens.
