    4 garlic, minced finely
    1 tbsp black pepper powder

DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil in a pan

  • Tip: Add salt if you want the moisture to draw out fast
  • The onions should turn golden brown in color
  • Add some salt
  • Once the onions have sweated nicely, add garlic
  • Tip: Make sure that the garlic does not burn
  • Sauté the mixture for 10-30 seconds after adding garlic
  • Once the aroma of garlic starts coming out, add the remaining ingredients

  • Tip: For best results, add garlic and ginger in a 3:1 ratio
  • Add the green chillies
  • Add 1 tbsp of Korean pepper
  • Add the tomatoes
  • Tip: If you do not have Korean pepper, then you can also use regular red chillie powder, smoked or spiced paprika

  • Tip: The tomatoes should have a saucy consistency
  • Add pepper for flavor
  • Add rosemary
  • Add salt
  • Shake the pan well
  • Allow the ingredients to cook for 20 minutes
  • As the tomatoes cook, send the bread to toast
  • Cut the sage leaves for garnishing and add them to the tomatoes
  • Sprinkle the tomatoes with juice of one lime
  • Add fried onions when there is about one minute of cooking left for a sweet caramel taste
  • After removing the bread from the toaster, carve a circle out of its brown side with a cylindrical cutter
  • Take 1 tbsp of the tomato concasse and place it right on top of the toast
  • Ready to serve
