This is a tomato-y, garlicky sauce that is really delicious alone with rice or with any other meat-rice dish.

6 large red juicy tomatoes, finely chopped (or if you wish shredded)
3 large cloves of garlic, grated
1/4 cup olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon (or more) of kashmiri chili powder
3 tablespoons tomato paste
3 cups of water

Heat the olive oil in a medium sized pot and then add the tomatoes. Cook the tomatoes until all the liquid has cooked away and all you are left with is tomatoes and oil.

Add the garlic, salt, chili powder, and tomato paste. Stir well and then add the water. Stir again.

Bring to a boil and then simmer, covered, until you get a nice, thick sauce.

Serve with rice.
