Tomatoche Saar

Following the footsteps of tomatochi bhaaji is another tomato item.. but now in a liquified form.. Tomato Saar.. The Maharashtrian soup for RCI Maharashtrian Cuisine and "T of Indian Vegetables"

According to my knowledge, Tomato Saar is the only Maharashtrian soup! (provided you dont call "Kadhi" as "Yoghurt Soup" and Daal as "Lentils Soup" :D) Tomato saar is thinner than the normal tomato soup and is easy to make. The real taste comes from the exact balance of sugar salt, pepper and the cumin-mustard tadka made in ghee. This falls in the soup/appetiser category and is usually served in Maharashtrian wedding ceremonies. People like me easily gulp down 2-3 bowls :D

Tomatoche Saar

What you need:

3-4 Tomatoes(preferably hard ones)
10-12 Black Pepper, powdered
2-3 tsp Sugar
Salt to taste
1 tbsp Ghee
1 tsp Cumin Seeds
1 tsp Mustard Seeds
2 tsp Corriander, chopped

How to proceed:

1) Boil Tomatoes in water till they are soft and skin comes off easily
2) Remove the skin from tomatoes and blend in a mixie
3) Sieve it to remove tomato seeds
4) Now transfer the contents in a cooking pan
5) Add powdered pepper, salt and sugar and bring to boil
6) Add water as required to get watery texture [Saar is very thin compared to soup]
7) Let it boil for 7-8 mins
8) In a separate pan, heat ghee, and add mustard and cumin seeds to it.
9) Once the seeds start spluttering, add the tadka to the saar
10) Now mix the saar well and let cook for 2-3 mins
11) Serve hot garnished with corriander

* Tadka in pure ghee gives an outstanding taste to the saar! Take care while adding tadka to the saar..
