Step 1

Heat the oil in a pan over low heat and add the spices in the following order: fenugreek seeds, cumin seeds, mustard seeds, fennel seeds, nigella seeds, and chilis.

Step 2

Once the fennel seeds turn golden brown, add the tomatoes. Toss well to coat the tomatoes with oil. Add turmeric, cayenne pepper, and salt. Mix and cover to cook for 2-3 minutes.

Uncover and gently press the tomatoes with the back of the spatula. The tomatoes should start to burst. Add sugar and stir well. Cook uncovered for 2 more minutes.
