About Maharashtrian Style Plum & Coconut Saar/Soup

The ‘saar’ is a very simple preparation and the skill lies in getting the correct balance of sour, sweet and spice. I was some how confident that I would be able to balance the flavour and also knew if I nail that balance perfectly it would turn out to be a wonderful dish, my only worry was that the saar might curdle on boiling as there’s coconut milk in it, but a few kitchen tricks that I’ve learnt from my granny came to my rescue there.

Ingredients to make Maharashtrian Style Plum & Coconut Saar/Soup

  • 100ml coconut milk
  • 5-6 plums
  • 1big green chili (spicy)
  • 1inch piece ginger
  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • A small piece beetroot
  • 1tbsp coriander stem chopped
  • 1-2tbsp rice flour mixed in 1/4cup water
  • 3-4tsp sugar (adjust as per taste)
  • 1/2tsp cumin

  • 2tsp oil
  • 1/2tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/2tsp cumin seeds
  • 6-7 curry leaves
  • A pinch of strong asafoetida/heeng

How to make Maharashtrian Style Plum & Coconut Saar/Soup

  1. Wash the plums and beetroot. Peel the beetroot and cut a small piece. Cut the plums into halves and wriggle both halves to remove the seed.
  2. In a microwave safe dish place the plums and beetroot along with a cup of water. Cook on microwave high for 4-5 minutes. Stir once in between.
  3. Remove the dish and place it under the fan to cool faster.
  4. Take the cooked plum mix, ginger, garlic, green chilies, coriander stem, cumin seeds in a mixer grinder and grind it to a smooth paste. If required add water.
  5. The ground paste can be directly used but I like my saar/soup to have a smooth texture for which I passed the paste through a fine sieve.
  6. Mix the paste now with coconut milk and about 1/2 - 3/4cup of water. Also add the rice flour paste.
  7. Bring the contents to a boil and stir continuously. Once the saar boils, simmer and add salt & sugar to taste.
  8. Make the tempering and add it to the ‘saar’ and cover immediately with a lid so that all the flavours from the tempering get trapped.
  9. Serve hot. We had the ‘saar’ like a soup.
