Tomato saar with coconut milk

This recipe is absolutely delicious. Its tomato saar with a twist. You add coconut milk to it and its slightly sweet, typical of cuisines from where my husband is from. I love it and since its so easy to make its a simple way to my husband's heart.


1 14 oz can diced tomatoes
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup water
2 tblsp gud (jaggery shredded)
1 tsp red chilly powder
1 tsp asofetida
4 to 5 curry leaves
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
salt to taste

Blend diced tomatoes to a pulp. Add water. Keep aside. Heat oil in a pot. Add curry leaves, mustard and cumin seeds and asofetida. Wait till spices crackle. Add blended tomato. Add jaggery. Let it come to a boil. Add coconut milk. Stir. Heat for a minute more. Serve hot.

I must try this Tomato saaru. Lately I am buying Tomato Basil signature soup from Safeway Supermarket, but I love Konkani style saaru like your hubby and also love Bhenda specially sukke and Sagle. Your recipe seems easy to make.
