Method:

              Gather all the ingredients.

  • Saute onions and garam masala.
  • Add chopped tomatoes.

  • Add water just above the level of tomatoes .

  • Cover the lid and let it boil for at least 25 minutes, or if using pressure cooker, wait for a whistle and cook under pressure, on low flame for 10-15 minutes.Put off the flame and let the cooker cool down.

  • Remove tejpatta and cloves and blend the remaining contents till smooth.
  • Strain it using a  soup strainer or colander.

Add water and bring it to boil again
