Tomato Saar is a quintessential Maharashtrian preparation, also a ‘must have’ dish for most of our festive fares.
Tomato is paired with coconut and then tempered with a few spices to make a sweet-spicy-tangy ‘soup’ usually as an accompaniment to steamed rice, although it can also be served like a soup on its own.
Every Maharashtrian household has a ‘unique’ recipe for Tomato Saar. This recipe is my mom’s and I have followed exactly as she makes it. (I am surprised that after all these years I have missed blogging about it here on My Foodcourt!) Freshly scrapped coconut is the best option for the authentic saar taste, but you can also use canned coconut milk for a quick option.
In other news, after my earlier rant about the camera, the DSLR is finally home and being played with. I am still discovering the unlimited features, so you will soon see a lot of my ‘discoveries’ with the same either here on the blog or on the FB page here.
