I bought 2 kgs of beautiful red tomatoes but could not use it all, what did i do then?? Made a delicious puree and stored in my fridge for quick cooking.

What do we need??

Tomatoes: Used around 9-10 medium sized ones.

Sugar: 2 tbsp

Salt: 2 tsp

Apple cider vinegar: 2 tsp


Chop off the eye part because it is bitter.

Make a cross cut on the opposite side and put some water and tomatoes in a pressure cooker.

Cook for one whistle and let it cool down

Remove the skin and blend in a mixie.

Sieve it and again blend with some water used in the pressure cooker.

Sieve it again.

Now take this pureed tomatoes in a big pan and put on low flame. A big pan is important as puree splatters out a lot. Add the sugar and salt and cook for 15-20 minutes. Add apple cider vinegar and cook for 15 minutes more. Cook till the puree gets thick so that it coats the back of the spoon. Switch off the flame. Fill it up in a sterilized glass bottle when lukewarm.

Keeps for a month in fridge.

Can be used for making curries, pasta sauce, pizza sauce pizza etc.
