Pasta-sauce-recipe-step by step pictures
      Its a long time wish for me to make pasta sauce at home. I love pomodoro, arrabiata sauces from Pasta mania and love the pasta sauce with carrots that they serve in IKEA. I like IKEA sauce better as it has veggies and its sweet in taste too. So after browsing few recipes, I took an idea from this post and tweaked the recipe to suit my taste buds. It came out great, tasted and smelt so good. So here is the recipe. Its very easy to make with simple ingredients you have in your pantry. Now a days kids love pasta more, so why not make your own pasta sauce? Will be handy for your kids when they come back from school!

Homemade-pasta sauce

Ingredients (4 servings)

Red ripe tomato 4
Tomato puree(canned) 1/4 cup
Yellow onion 1
Carrot 1
Brown sugar / white sugar 1 tblsp
Mixed Italian seasoning 1 tsp
Crushed red pepper(chilli flakes) 1 tsp
Crushed black pepper 3/4 tsp
Olive oil 4 tblsp
Garlic 4
Corn flour(white) 1/2 tsp
Salt As needed

 

Method

  1. Boil enough water and drop the tomatoes and wait for a minute. Take out and cool down. Peel off the skin.
  2. Blend this tomato and keep a side. Chop carrot into tiny bits. Chop garlic and onion finely. Heat a pan with oil and add garlic, give a quick stir taking care not to change the colour of garlic.
  3. Add onion and give it a stir. Add the chopped carrots. Add a tsp of sugar. 
  4. Fry for 2 minutes in medium flame, add ground tomato and the canned tomato puree.
  5. Transfer to a sauce pot. Add 1/4 cup water and bring to boil. Add salt, remaining sugar and the Italian seasoning. Crush between your palm while adding. Add crushed red and black pepper.
  6. Simmer for 5 minutes and lastly add corn flour dissolved in 2 tblsp of water. Boil until oil separates and the sauce becomes shiny and thick. 
                    Cool down and transfer to a jar and keep refrigerated, use within 4 days.
Pasta sauce- homemade
Notes
  • Use red ripe tomatoes. I used canned puree for the colour.
  • Adding carrots is optional, but I love the sweetness it adds to the sauce.
  • Adding brown sugar or white sugar reduces the acidity of tomatoes.
  • Add olive oil generously as mentioned.
  • Adding corn flour is for thickening and its purely optional.
