1. Boil the tomatoes in hot water for 5 minutes and remove the skin. Chop the tomatoes and keep aside.

3. Add in the chopped tomatoes, the light brown and white sugar, raisins and the chili/cumin/garlic paste from step 2. Stir this on medium heat until it turns deep red. Add in the chili powder and salt to taste. Turn off the heat. Let it cool and then store in a dry/airtight container.
