Basic sweet tomato sauce

 I make a huge variation of tomato sauces and this one is probably the most basic.
This is a sweet sauce and goes perfectly with yogurt sauce, they really compliment each other.

You will need

  • 1 can of whole tomatoes
  • 3-6 cloves of finely chopped garlic (depending how gutsy you want it)
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of maldon salt  ( taste and fine tune)
Gently heat the olive oil and fry the garlic until it has flavored the oil and basically cooked.
Next add the tomatoes and break up with your wooden spoon, followed by the salt and sugar.  Let it bubble away on medium - low heat  and reduce until you have a jammy consistency.  Watch that it doesn't burn.  The sugar adds a glossy brightness to the sauce.
