Here’s a quick dish that I love having as an accompaniment with several types of food-dishes and it is the perfect replacement for ketchup minus preservatives.
1 Tb. Sp. Oil
1 Tsp. Cumin (jeera)
1 small piece Cinnamon (dalchini)
1 Tb. Sp. Raisins (kishmish)
Salt (according to taste)
Red chilli powder (according to taste)
1 Tb. Sp. Sugar
Heat oil in a pan and add cumin and cinnamon to it.
Once the cumin starts spluttering, add salt and red chillies.
Add Tomatoes, some water and cover.
Once the tomatoes are well cooked remove the lid. Add Raisins and let it simmer for about five minutes.
Add Sugar. Mix well and let it simmer for another 5 minutes.
Serve as an accompaniment with rice or khichadi or chapattis or pakodas or puris or in any other way that you like. I love it even with sandwiches instead of regular ketchup bought from the market.
