  • In a nonstick pan, heat oil and saute the chopped garlic, chopped onions, well till it changes colour, then add the tomatoes and continue sauteing.
  • Add the chilli flakes and continue till the tomatoes are well cooked. Add salt and let it simmer for 10 mins.
  • Allow to cool and grind to a paste.
  • Heat the pan with oil, temper with cumin seeds, mustard seeds, curry leaves, and add the paste. Lowe the flame and cook till the paste it is nicely done. Takes about 10 to 15 mins.


Since the paste is cooked twice and for a longer time, this spread has good shelf life. This tastes great with rice as well!
