During the busy rush hours in the morning, I always try simple and easy recipes. Today’s recipe, i.e. Tomato Saar or Goan Tomato Curry is a very simple one. I cook rice everyday and therefore I have to cook a curry to go with the rice. I pack lunch for 3 people every morning and it is a real challenge to cook a new dish every morning at 6 AM. This Goan tomato curry is a simple one and tastes really good. The tangy flavor of the tomatoes and the various spice powders makes this one a delicacy in my house.
The ingredients for this Goan tomato curry are simple and are readily available in the local market. Fresh tomatoes always makes a great curry. I have added garlic, but you can use ginger too and then this curry can be used on your special days, i.e. the days when you don’t eat onion and garlic. Since my little one does not like very “hot” chilly taste, I keep the usage of red chilly powder to the minimal in. But you can use more if you need. Since the tomatoes I used were a bit tangy, I added sugar. If you get sweet tomatoes, then you can avoid adding sugar to this curry.
So why don’t you try this simple recipe instead of making the regular Dal fry? I bet everyone will love it and will leave them wanting you to make it again.
