Creamy, spicy and tangy, this Tomato Ketchup is as perfect as the ones you get in the market, or even better because of the fresh flavour that is unique to homemade products. Tomatoes are pressure cooked with a spice bag, blended, strained and then cooked till a saucy consistency is achieved. This simple but ideal procedure results in a flavourful and thick sauce, which will add value to any dish it is served with or used in. The flavour of the spices seeps well through the potli and is quite noticeable in the ketchup. Note that no water is used in the preparation – this helps cook the sauce faster and also to increase its shelf life. If you do not wish to add the preservative (sodium benzoate), you must keep the sauce in the fridge and use it within a month. If preservative is added, you can store it in the fridge for a longer time.

Hi , What is sodium Benzoit ? Can I make the ketchup without using it as I would love to make it without preservatives. And instead of sugar can dried grapes (kismis) be added for sweetness for I would love to use less sugar than the one available in markets ?

Tarla Dalal    Hi Akila, yes you can make it without sodium benzoate.. the only thing is you will have to use it within a weeks time.. and regarding grapes.. i am not sure for the sweetness.. But you can adjust the sweetness according to your taste..
