When you want to make something quick and easy which feels elaborate, then this is it.
This is my version of quick and easy pasta sauce. This can be made in advance and freezes well. This is well received in my nest and I hope you all too enjoy it too.
3 medium onions
6 medium ripe red tomatoes
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp Mixed dried herbs
1 inch piece ginger
3 big cloves of garlic (optional)
Red chilli flakes as per taste
Salt as per taste
Clean onion and tomatoes and cut them in chunks.
Heat olive oil in thick non-reactive bottom pan and add onions and fry them a bit. Add chilli flakes, dried herbs, chopped ginger and garlic and sauté.
Next add in the tomatoes and cook till they are done. Adjust salt and add sugar. Mix well and let it cool.
Take the cooled mixture in chopper and blitz for a few seconds till you get a chunky gravy consistency. Remember to pulse in seconds and keep checking else you will have a smooth paste.
Use it for making pasta or cool completely to store in the freezer for couple of weeks.
