YIELD: APPROX 1 CUP OF MASALA OR ENOUGH FOR 600G OF CHIPS
1 cup Tomato Pasata
1/2 cup Tomato Ketchup
1/4 Cup Chopped White Onion
2-3 Crushed Garlic Cloves
2 tbsp kasturi methi (dried fenugreek leaves)
2 Chopped Green Chillis
1 Julienned Chopped Red Chilli (chopped into matchsticks 🙄)
Handful of Coriander/Cilantro
Juice of 1/2 a Lemon
1/2 TSP Salt
1/2 TSP Chilli Powder
1/4 TSP Turmeric Powder
2 tbsp vegetable / cooking oil
Tip: Be Sure to take out a bit of the masala and have it as a Dipping Sauce on the Side ;)
drop the vegetable oil into a hot shallow pan
add the chopped onion, cook them down until translucent (approx 3 minutes)
lower the heat and throw in the crushed garlic and mix in with the onions
now add the following and mix in well to form the 'masala base'
now crush the kasturi mehti between your palms as in the video and sprinkle over the pan. We do this to break up the stringy/twiggy texture.
add the tomato pasata and again, mix in well. Cook out the sourness for 2-3 minutes
now add the tomato ketchup, stir in and cook for 2 minutes. Add a little oil if it looks to dry. The video is great to check what consistency you're looking for
throw in following and stir in well:
chopped green chillis
red chilli matchsticks
finally, squeeze half a lemon over the masala and stir
THE MASALA IS READY!!
Now the masala is done all you have to do is add your hot chips to the pan and fold in until they are coated in the hot, sticky, spicy masala.
Oven Chips are great but if you want to make your own fluffy little babies, try our twice cooked, real chips method >>>>
