Tomato soup

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 ;).

Ingredients:
Tomatoes 4
Potato(small) 1
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
Salt

Method:
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).

Serves : 3
Preparation time : 20min

    thx for such a simple and delicious soup recipe. I will stick to this tomato soup recipe going forward.

  6. hi shilpa there is yet another method of making the soup and this would taste just like the ones served at restaurants here in india if u hv tasted it in bangalore.

  7. Try adding 1/2 apple while boiling tomato. It makes the soup thicker, a bit sweet & healthy. Then adding corn flour to make it thicker is not required. But otherwise, good job!!!! Keep it up!
