How to make "Tomato sauce from tomato juice"
Prepare all the ingredients you need. Prepare the tomato juice using a juicer or mince the tomatoes. Heat the sugar and all the spices in a pan well so that the sugar begins to melt, and the spices actively reveal their aroma. Pour in the tomato juice, add salt to taste, stir and simmer over low heat for 15-20 minutes to thicken the mass. To understand the desired consistency of the sauce, run the spatula along the bottom of the pan, there should be a clear mark from it and not fill up quickly.
