How to make Tomato Ketchup /Sauce

  1. Combine all the dry grounded ingredients in a muslin cloth, tie a knot and keep aside.
  2. Combine the tomatoes and the prepared Potli in the pressure cooker and pressure cook for 3 whistles, without adding water.
  3. Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid, remove the Potli from the tomato mixture and discard it.
  4. Cool the tomato mixture slightly and blend it in a mixer or grind it with grinder till smooth.
  5. Strain the mixture using a strainer.
  6. Transfer the tomato mixture into a deep non-stick pan, or in a cooker.. cook on a medium flame till 15 to 17 minutes
  7. Add the chilli powder and black salt with dried ginger powder mix well
  8. Add sugar mix nicely let the mixture cook till it gets the required thickness and also the mixture leaves the sides of the utensil while stirring occasionally.
  9. Add plain salt to enhances the taste before adding vinegar
