Tomato saar – 4

This was an experiment which turned out to be delicious. I was left with about four glasses of tomato juice and wanted to finish it off as soon as possible. I was wondering if I should make a soup and then I remembered that there was a half a tetra pack unused coconut milk lying in the freezer. I decided to make a Saaru which turned out to be simply amazing.


8 tomatoes blended to a puree

Sugar, salt, pepper powder and a pinch of chaat masala.

100 ml coconut milk

2 tbsps Ghee/ clarified butter

12 cloves of garlic crushed

1 heaped tsp chilly powder

3 tbsps finely chopped coriander leaves


Blend the tomatoes in a mixer and strain the puree. Tip it into a pan and add the sugar, salt, chilly powder, pepper and chaat masala. Add water as required. The consistency should be neither thick nor watery. Bring it to a boil and allow to simmer for about five minutes. Heat the ghee in a pan and drop in the crushed garlic. Roast till the garlic turns a deep brown. Pour the seasoning into the boiling Saaru and simmer it for another five minutes. Drop in the coconut milk and coriander leaves. Keep stirring for a minute. Switch off and serve hot.
