In saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; fry onion, garlic, paprika, mustard and salt, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 3 minutes.

Add ketchup, 1/2 cup (125 mL) water, sugar and vinegar; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until mixture flows slowly when spatula is drawn across bottom of pot and is like thick ketchup, about 20 minutes.

In food processor or blender, purée sauce until smooth. (Make-ahead: Let cool; refrigerate in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.)
