Before learning this, I used to make soup from the ready made packs. But it is always good to make it fresh than making from ready made powder. This I learnt from Ajji(Mrs Diwan, unfortunately I forgot her name, used to always refer to her as Amit’s ajji). Ofcourse I have done some modifications to it, since I could not remember the exact recipe told by her ;).
Ginger 1″ piece
Garlic 2 flakes
Corn flour or maida 1 tbl spn
Pepper powder 1/2 tea spn
Maggi taste maker(optional) 2 cubes
Fresh cream(Optional) 1 tea spn
Bread cubes(fried in oil or ghee)(Optional) 10
Cook tomatoes, pealed potatoes, ginger, garlic(if more ginger-garlic is added, the soup gets spoiled) in sufficient water. Cool & grind to a smooth paste using the water used for cooking. (There should not be any lumps).
Boil water & add taste maker. When they are dissolved, add the tomato paste. Add sufficient water and salt. Bring it to boil. Add some water to corn flour(or maida), make a smooth paste & add this to soup stirring continuously. Add the pepper powder.
While serving, add cream & bread pieces(directly into soup bowl).
