Home Made Tomato Ketchup ٹماٹو کیچپ گھر پر تیار کریں

Tomato Ketchup is one of the most popular sauce in the world. There are many brands of Tomato Ketchup in Pakistan like Ahmed Tomato Ketchup, National Tomato Ketchup, Knorr Tomato Ketchup, Shangrilla Tomato Ketchup and many more. Most of the commercially produced Tomato Ketchups are made from Tomato Paste, prepared locally or imported from neighbouring countries. These branded tomato ketchup are easy to use but a load of preservatives are added in their products. Some times food colours are also added to maintain colour consistency. I am not asking not to use the commercially prepared Tomato Ketchup, but selected trusted brands. Tomato Ketchup can easily be prepared in your kitchen also. Kindly follow my following recipe.
