The word “ketchup” sure does fill our minds with images of a bottles and jars containing red colored thick and glossy condiment made from tomatoes. Well, we have been eating indian tomato sauce and ketchups since forever. But a ketchup doesn’t necessarily have to start with and end at tomatoes. You’ll be amazed to know that there is an entire world beyond the conventional tomatoes.
Ketchup suppliers in india have a number of ketchups and sauces in their kitty made out of different fruits and flavors. And you can make your own at home as well. So let’s take a break from tomatoes and look at some of the fruit recipes
•Strawberry sauce: The strawberry recipe is made from the mixture of strawberry and sugar. Strawberry is stirred with the sugar unless it gets coated completely. This mixture then is heated for 5 minutes. Lemon juice is added to it and the mixture is stirred. Transfer the contents into a jar containing tightening lid and refrigerate it for three weeks. Remember to use very ripe strawberries if you want a juicy ketchup.
•Mixed berry sauce recipe: Do you like the sight of yummy sauce spread over cheesecakes and vanilla ice creams, making it even more delightful? Well you can make this delight by using a combination of whatever berries you can think of- strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and red raspberries.
•Caramel butter sauce recipe: The caramel sauce is one tempting recipe made out of sugar, butter and whipping cream. The only point of concern while making this recipe is that making caramel is a fast process. If you don’t work fast on mixing butter and cream, the sugar will burn.
•Creamy walnut recipe: The main ingredients of this recipe are walnuts, butter and olive oil. The nuts are first grinded. Butter and olive oil are added until a paste forms out of it. People who love cheese can also add a lot of cheese at this stage. Then the cream is added and blended until a smooth mixture is ready.
No wonder we have a number of sauces to choose from- from sweet to spicy! But don’t worry tomatoes, indian tomato sauce has no replacement and we will still need you while having paranthas and pakodas!
