Tomatoes take on a completely different hue when combined with Oriental sauces, vinegar and sugar. This low-calorie sauce is thickened with a minimal amount of cornflour and squashed using a potato masher to get a coarse texture. The Sweet and Sour Sauce is a versatile one, which lends itself to noodles and rice preparations, apart from being a wonderful accompaniment to snacks.

This was easy and a great alternative to regular sweet and sour sauce. I subsituted 1 teaspoon Truvia for the sugar.
