Tomato saaru

Tomato Saar

I just love this saaru and it is very easy to cook also. There was a time when I used to ask my mother to make this saaru everyday for lunch.


  • Juicy Tomatoes - 2
  • Green Chillies - 3 to 4
  • Garlic - 10 to 12 cloves
  • Oil
  • Salt to taste


  • Cut tomatoes into small pieces and set aside.
  • Heat some oil in a pan. To this add the garlic (crushed) and saute till it starts turning light brown.
  • Now add the tomatoes, green chillies slit into two and salt to taste.
  • Cover the pan with a lid and cook on a small flame till the tomato is cooked. (for about 4 mins)
  • Now add about 3 cups of water and bring to a boil ( add more water if the tomatoes are big) and the saaru is ready.

Preparation time: 10 minutes
