Easy Homemade Ketchup

Easy Homemade Ketchup

This recipe is very near and dear to me. It's my late Nani's (Maternal Grandmother's) recipe and it's something we all enjoyed growing up. It's not your classic thick and sharp Heinz ketchup. It's more of a desi ketchup, think the ketchup served in bazaars (markets) with those chaat masala fries. A little more sweet, spiced with laal mirch(cayenne) and bhuna va zeera (toasted cumin seeds), and it is absolutely delicious. It goes perfect with your classic trolley foods; samosas, sandwiches, fried chicken, pakoray and so much more.

Chana Masala

In a time crunch? Then this 30 minute recipe is for you. Chickpeas make a hearty meal, and I always have multiple cans of chickpeas in my pantry.  I also always have pre-fried onions on hand, which cuts down a lot of cooking time. That's why I'm never too far from a pot of delicious Chana Masala.
