CALZONE WITH MARINARA SAUCE
HOME MADE MARINARA SAUCE
I do make tomato based sauce as this for pizza's, pasta's, Lasagne etc., but I make them fresh when ever I plan to dish out a recipe which needs sauces.., This is the first time I made so much sauce for one go and now it is stored in the fridge!!, Again this recipe is from her...., I just a tweaked it a little bit...
650 gms of Tomatoes
200 gms Tomato puree
1/4 cup passata
1 1/2tsp of Ginger-Garlic paste
1 Green pepper (Capsicum)
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp chilli powder
1 tbsp pepper powder
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
2-3 tbsp of oil
salt as required
On a stove top I burnt the capsicum/pepper and charred it and removed its skin and its pith, chopped the onions and with GG paste grinded them into a fine paste, In a wok heat oil add this ground fine paste and saute for few minutes until the raw smell of onions disappear, then add the puree, passata, sugar, chilli powder, pepper powder and allow it to boil for few minutes until it starts thickening.
Then in the end add the seasonings and boil for 2 more minutes and put of the stove.
Once it is cool store it in a air tight bottle or container and refrigerate it and use it as required.
I like to send this to Nupur's copy cat Adaptation, blog bite #3 , ends on may 25th check out her blog for details and have a go at it...
