Tomato sauce figures majorly into numerous international cuisines, and the version included in the “mother sauce” list can be thoroughly transformed through the addition of spices and aromatics. For instance, executive chef and owner Anish Nair of Jai Ho in Atlanta “uses tomato sauce as the base for one of Jai Ho’s all-time guest favorites: Tikka Masala. To provide additional flavor to the sauce[I] add cream, yogurt and herbs, including fenugreek leaves, ginger, coriander, bay leaf, cilantro, and turmeric. [I swap] plum tomatoes for the regular tomatoes usually found in tomato sauce and use honey to balance the sweetness with the sharpness of the tomatoes.”
