Always use best quality ingredients for cooking The final outcome of pasta sauce highly depends on the quality of tomatoes you use . Try picking up nicely ripened and juicy tomatoes. if your sauce feels dry in between cooking , just add 1/4 cup or more water and let it simmer for few minutes If by any chance you don’t find sweet tomatoes , i.e if the tomatoes are a bit tart then just add some honey or increase the amount of carrots and you will have the best homemade pasta sauce ever . Adding spice is optional You can substitute wheat flour with all purpose flour/ maida. Now you don’t have a single reason not to try it. This recipe can easily be doubled .
