1 C (250 ml) tomato sauce
1 C (250 ml) chutney
¼ C (60 ml) Worcestershire sauce
¼ C (60 ml) water

2 Tbsp (30 ml) Soy sauce

Add a splash of oil to a medium size pot and set it over medium heat. 

Add the onion and saute for 5 minutes until it begins to soften. Add the garlic and ginger and fry for 2 minutes until fragrant. Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Once it has come to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes until thickened.
