Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh garlic
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon asafoetida*
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon Spanish paprika
  • 3 red peppers, seeds removed and peppers sliced
  • 1/2 cup organic vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • Pinch salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon cumin seeds

Directions

Put the oil in a large skillet and add the red onion and garlic. Cook until the onions are soft, about 4 minutes and then add the garam masala, asafoetida, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, and Spanish paprika and cook for 10 seconds. Add the red peppers and cook for about 2 minutes and then pour in the vegetable broth and wine. Season the mixture with salt and pepper and then simmer until the peppers are soft, about 8 to 10 minutes. 

Place the peppers and broth in a blender and carefully puree in batches until very smooth. Toast the cumin seeds in a cast iron pan until they begin to lightly smoke and smell good and fragrant. Pour the puree into a clean saucepan and reheat and serve in a bowl with the toasted cumin seeds.
