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 of tomatoes that is unique to homemade products.

To make Indian style tomato ketchup, 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 tomato 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 xxxxtomato ketchup. Note that no water is used in the preparation – this helps cook the tomato sauce faster and also to increase its shelf life.

If you do not wish to add the preservative (sodium benzoate), you must keep the tomato sauce in the fridge and use it within a month. If preservative is added, you can store tomato ketchup in the fridge for a longer time.

While cooking the tomato sauce you need to be a little patient as cooking and getting the right consistency takes a little while. Sodium benzoate acts as a preservative and helps in increasing the shelf life of our homemade tomato ketchup.

You can also try other sauces like Chilli Garlic Sauce or Barbeque Sauce.

Tarla Dalal    Not sure on market sauces but they will be using a lot of preservatives. Homemade tomato ketchup will always have a richer taste.

The recipe says don''t add water while pressure cooking it Won''t the tomatoes stick n burn ??? N if I make it without the preservative can it last in the fridge for a Mnth?

Tarla Dalal    HI Manika, No, the tomatoes will not stick and burn as you have to chop them and they will release the juice. You can refer the YOutube video for the same.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.
Edited after original posting.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Subs, You can try using cherry tomatoes but, the taste will differ greatly as they are tangier in nature.
