8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, divided
3 tablespoons garlic paste *
3 tablespoons ginger paste *
2 pounds fresh tomatoes, chopped
Salt, to taste
2 tablespoons shredded ginger
3 to 4 serrano chiles, or to taste, finely chopped

* To prepare the pastes, peel, chop coarsely and crush in a mortar to a fine paste.
