This is used as a base in Indian curries (at least those served at Jamuna Resort). This recipe serves 4. If it's a small addition to a recipe, scale down to 1 or 2 tomatoes.

Chop the onion and sautee in ghee.

In a blender, make a paste with the garlic and ginger, plus water. Add tomatoes and onion. Blend together to make a smooth sauce.

Simmer on the stove for awhile. Don't add salt until you use this in other recipes.
