Homemade Italian Basic Sauce!

I have been wanting to post this recipe from long time,  thought of posting this today as I prepared. I love Italian dishes.

I used to use store bought sauce and this is the first time I tried at home. It was perfect and yummy. This sauce can be used for Pizzas /Pastas /as a dip.

Tomatoes - 2 nos
Garlic - crushed /chopped 2 to 3 nos
Basil leaves - few
Tomato sauce - 1/2 tspn
Olive oil - 1 tspn

Preparation Method
Blanch the tomatoes(see notes below)
Heat wok/pan, add olive oil, add garlic just toss for few mins(it should not be brown)
Add the tomato puree, tomato sauce, chopped basil leaves and cook the gravy till raw smell goes. You will get a thick sauce.

Italian Basic Sauce is ready for use in your dishes.

Allow it to cool and store in air tight container.
Notes - Blanch - Boil enough water in a vessel, put the tomotoes and cover it for few mins. Then put in cold water, remove skin slowly. Cut into four pieces and deseed it. Put in a blender/mixie and grind to fine paste.
