An adaptation from that works - this is the base sauce for many of the curries I will be posting over the next few weeks. This sauce will freeze so multiply it up and freeze down for quick curries.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fry the onions in the oil on a medium heat until the onions are soft and translucent (5mins).
  2. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute.
  3. add Tomatoes and cook for a further 3 minutes.
  4. Add half the water and simmer for 5 minutes then add the rest of the water and spices. Stir in well and simmer for a further 5 minutes. Keep stirring regularly throughout cooking. Take the pan off the heat and leave to cool slightly before pureeing in a food processor.

I made this to use in recipe 167479 (Recipe Standard Saag Aloo) and it was great. I now have a batch in the freezer so I'd love to know what else I can use it for - please post some more recipes using this!
