Ready in less than 5 mins. just mix common stuffs lying in the pantry



  • 1 can of crushed tomatoes
  • 1 large onion (finely chopped)
  • few green olives from the jar (to give a tangy twist)
  • few cloves of garlic / garlic powder (1 tsp)
  • salt (to taste)
  • chilly powder/cayenne pepper (1 tsp)
  • extra virgin olive oil (for shallow fry ~ 1 tbsp)


1) in a pan, heat up the olive oil.

2) once it is a little heated, throw in the chopped onions and garlic (note: if using garlic powder, don't put it now) (this is the most time-consuming part of the recipe ~2 mins)

3) once the onions are cooked as per your preference, throw in the olives and saute for 10 seconds.

4) pour in the crushed tomatoes and mix it well.

5) start seasoning with the spices: salt, chilly powder and garlic powder (if applicable)

6) once everything is mixed well, it is ready to serve.

best part of this recipe, you can modify the flavor to make it more tangy by adding olives, more salty by adding salt or more spicy by adding more chilly/cayenne pepper powder.

if the flavors are too strong, just add some butter to mellow it down.
