Tomato Saar


Clocks have gone back this weekend. So now when you wake up its still dark outside. Taking warm clothes out and pack summer clothes is on your to do list. The best part of this season is that it is so colourful outside. I love to go out for a walk and get soaked in the Autumn colours. Everywhere you go, in nature, there are breath-taking views. This will soon change, and the landscape will be totally different. Days will be even shorter and colder. What would be more comforting than having a hot soup on a winter evening.

I am bringing you a series of delicious Indian style soups some of which can be served as an appetiser and some can be served as a main course.

First one in this series is a Tomato Saar. Saar literally means the extract. Saar is a thin soup which can be served as an appetiser and can be served with bread or rice.  It is one of the most popular soups served in Maharashtrian households. It has even made its place in the festive or ceremonial menus. It is a popular accompaniment for vegetable Pulav rice. I have served the Saar with baguette and butter.
