Ingredients for Seasoning

Paprika is a heat and color-influencing agent for this recipe. Adding paprika will bring a nice and impressive color and also, it will improve the heat. You need 2 tsp of paprika. Remember it’s a heat influencer. So, add according to your preference. 

Another flavor-influencing agent is black pepper. In terms of today’s recipe, you need to add the same amount of black pepper as paprika. So, take 2 tsp of this spice. It will spread a nice aroma and increase the taste. 

  • Cayenne Pepper Powder (2 Tsp)

Cayenne pepper adds a robust flavor to recipes. So. you need 2 tsp of cayenne pepper for your today’s recipe. But, we recommend you not to add more than 2 tsp. It can distaste your sauce recipe. 

  • Salt (2 Tsp)

Salt is important to make the base of the recipe. Without salt, your sauce recipe will be distasteful. However, it’s important to apply the accurate amount of sauce. In this case, 2 tsp will be perfect. Check the recipe later and add if it requires more. 

  • Chili Flakes (2 Tsp)

Chili flakes will add both flavor and also heat. You already have added paprika. So, if you don’t like heat much, go for 1 tsp of chili flakes. But, in the case of those who love heat can add 2 tsp. It will make a good combination with other spices to spread flavor and heat. 

  • Thyme & Oregano (2 Tsp Each)

For adding a pungent warmth to your recipe, the fresh oregano and thyme come into consideration. However, you can apply the dried thyme and oregano powder as well. 

In this case, take 2 tsp of both these ingredients. You don’t have to take the thyme and oregano powder. Take the whole oregano and thyme as they are. 

  • Onion & Garlic Powder (2 Tsp)

And since there’s a cooking process in this recipe, you must add some garlic and onion as well. In this case, the amount would be the same as other ingredients. 

Take 2 tsp of garlic powder and 2 tsp of onion powder as well. You also can apply the fresh garlic and onion. In this case, you need to use the minced garlic and onion. 

Ingredients for Sauce

Now you require three more ingredients to make the main sauce recipe. These are as follows-

  • Butter (1 Packet)

To cook this recipe, butter is a must-have ingredient. You shouldn’t go with the regular cooking oil. Or your recipe won’t come with the taste and flavor you desire. Take 1 packet of butter. 

  • Onion (1)

Take a whole onion and chop it into small pieces. It will be easier for you to blend faster. 

  • Garlic (1)

You’ll also be required to have whole garlic for your recipe. So, once you finish getting all the ingredients ready, you’re ready to go for the recipe to make. So, let’s begin!

This time, you need to step forward in your cooking procedure. So, put a saucepan on the stove at medium-high heat. Now add butter to it and let the butter melt. It will take 5 minutes to melt the whole butter. So, take that time. 


Once the butter is melted well, add the raw garlic and onion paste to it. And saute them for 10 minutes. Since the amount of garlic and onion is a bit more than the regular amount, it will take a bit more time to be sauteed well. 

Keep the heat medium-high and keep stirring so the paste won’t get burnt on the bottom of your saucepan. 


Once the onion and garlic paste becomes sauteed well, you need to add the seasoning that you got ready in step number 1. So, add them to the sauteed onion and garlic and mix well. 

Now let the mixture boil for 5 minutes. After 5 to 10 minutes. 


After that 10 minutes of boiling, turn the heat to low and let it simmer for 10 minutes.
