UTKA SAARU

My mother used to prepare this Saaru when we were small. I don't even remember the taste, but remembered the name of Saaru till now. Uddaka is water in Konkani and it's main ingredient is water and tamarind. So the name is Utka saaru! Yesterday I just tried Utka saaru, and it is my own recipe. Just loved the aroma of garlic and ghee.
