Celery (or coriander leaves) - 1/2 cup chopped
Tomato - 2 kgs (1 kg of Banglore vareity and 1 kg of the country vareity)
Basil leaves - finely chopped 1 tbsp
Salt to taste

Chop onion to big strips, mince garlic finely, cut tomatoes to smaller pieces. Chop the carrots finely. 

Heat oil in a large shallow pan, add onions, garlic pods, carrots and celery and saute well. Add the tomato pieces and reduce the flame. Cook for about 30 mins covered mashing and stirring every few mins. Once the tomato is cooked, remove from heat and let it cool and blend the mixture to a smooth paste.
