No Onion No Garlic Tomato Saar/Goan Tomato Curry

While i was looking for something simple, yet a comforting food with tomatoes, i crossed this ultimate Tomato saar at Pooja's Space. This dish is one of popular Goan vegetarian curry which is often cooked in most of the Goan families. This curry is a simple dish which is completely free from onions and garlics. Obviously if you dont eat onions and garlic or else if you follow a strict diet and you cant eat onions or garlic, this tomato curry will definitely please your tastebuds. This dish is an easy dish with simple spices in it. The author of this recipe says that many versions of this tomato saar exists, she also explained that coconut is also added in this saar dish, however she didnt added apart from cumin seeds, coriander seeds and red chillies in this dish to bring the flavor. Obviously i followed her dish completely as she went for,seriously everyone at home enjoyed this dish thoroughly with rice. If you are looking for a comforting meal, dont forget to give a try to this simple but yet a delicious curry.
