  • ¼ cup finely chopped garlic
  • ¼ cup finely chopped ginger
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp soya sauce
  • ½ tsp tomato ketchup
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup water

  • Take out the seeds from the red chili. No need to take out from the Kashmiri red chili. It is added to get a nice color.
  • You can skip adding Kashmiri chili too, if you don’t have.
  • Soak the chilis in ½ cup hot water for 15 minutes .
  • Grind this into a fine paste along with the water.
  • In a pan add oil, I used olive oil. You can use normal cooking oil too.

  • Switch off the flame.
  • Allow this to cool completely.
  • Store this in a clean jar for a month in the refrigerator.
