Barbecue Sauce

Tomato-based barbecue sauce is a bold combination of tangy, sweet, spicy, and smoky flavors. Store bought ones are overly sweet and of course loaded with preservatives.

Most recipes use ketchup.Here I have tried to create barbecue sauce using freshly pureed tomatoes and my home  cooked frozen tomato puree. Get the recipe here for tomato puree.

I have used freshly made red chili paste but you can  easily replace it with chili powder.

It hardly takes 7-10 minutes to assemble this amazing sauce.


Fresh tomatoes 200 gms

Cooked tomato puree 100 gms

Garlic powder 1/2 tsp

Onion powder 1/2 tsp

Salt 1 tsp or to taste

Yellow mustard powder 1 tsp

Paprika powder 1 tsp

Red chili paste 1 tsp

Jaggery powder 2 tbsp

Molasses 2 tbsp

Apple Cider Vinegar 2 tbsp

Pepper  8-10 cranks  of pepper mill


  1. Blend the fresh tomatoes in a blender.

  2. Pass it through a sieve to remove seeds and skin.

  3. Now take all the ingredients in a heavy bottom sauce pan, bring it to a boil.

  4. Let it simmer for 7 minutes.

  5. Keep stirring to avoid it from sticking to the bottom of the pan.

  6. Remove from fire and adjust the spices to your taste.

  7. Once it cools down keep it  in the fridge in  a glass bottle .
