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.
