Mildly sweet tomato ketchup with the goodness of tomatoes and without excessive sugar.
Choose bright red juicy tomatoes. Wash them, wipe with a cloth and chop roughly.
Similarly, peel and roughly chop onion, beet, ginger and cloves also.
Make a spice bag. For this take any clean cloth/napkin/handkerchief, put all the spices mentioned under spices. Tie a knot so that nonw of the spices come out of it. By doing so, the aroma of the spices will be imparted to the ketchup.
In a pressure cooker, put tomatoes, onion, beet, garlic cloves, ginger and this spice bag. Add 1/4 cup of water. Pressure cook it for 1 whistle. I tried doing this in a wok also but no apparent difference was observed so you can do it either way.
Once the pressure is released, mash the tomato mix with a hand blender. If want to use a mixer jar, then let it cool it first.
Pass this puree through a strainer.
Cook it for 2 to 3 minutes till gets slightly thick.
Add salt, red chilli powder, jaggery powder (or sugar), and vinegar.
Cook for few more minutes till the right consistency is reached. To know how to check this, read above.
Switch off the flame.
Let the ketchup cool completely. Fill it in a sterilized bottle.
Serve with love, snacks optional.
