Fresh tomato sauce tangy, sweet and sour with a spicy kick.
8 ripe medium tomatoes
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon chilli powder or chilli flakes
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon jaggery or brown sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice or white wine vinegar
1.Wash the tomatoes and chop them up finely.
2. Add oil in a pan and heat it on medium heat. When oil is hot add the chopped tomatoes and simmer them on low/medium heat for 10 minutes until the tomatoes breakup and form a pulp.
3. After 10 minutes add the salt,chilli powder, jaggery and lemon juice and simmer for another 5 minutes.
4. Once the tomatoes have absorbed the spices they should be thick and pulpy. Turn off the heat and leave to cool.
5. Transfer to a sterilised jar and keep in the fridge.
NB -I left the seeds in my sauce but if you prefer remove the seeds from the tomatoes before chopping them by cutting them in half and scooping the seeds out first with a spoon.
