Tomato Soup

As part of Cookbook Cooking Challenge for the month of October, Week 3, here is a delectable recipe for the Classic Tomato Soup. This has been shared by my neighbor and a good friend, Pooja. Thanks to her we have made this soup a regular affair at home!

Ingredients - 

Tomatoes, chopped 4-5 cups
Onion Chopped 3/4 cup
Garlic 3-4 Cloves 
Ginger 1 inch piece
Cinnamon 1 inch stick
Green Cardamom 2
Black Cardamom 1 
Clove 3-4
Salt, Sugar and Pepper to taste

Tomato Soup

Method Of Preparation -

In a pressure cooker add all the ingredients except salt, pepper and sugar adding about a cup of water. Cook until mushy (about 15-20 min)

After the pressure cooker cools down, blend the ingredients either with an immersion blender or the regular blender/mixer.

Sieve the puree and transfer the puree into a pan. 

Boil the puree adding salt and sugar to taste.

If the soup is not thick enough, mix 1 tablespoon of cornstarch in about 3-4 tablespoons of milk and add that smooth mixture to the simmering soup.

Remove from fire and serve hot with your choice of garnishes.

Tastes awesome with a topping of blanched almonds and croutons.

This post is for the CC Challenge of the month.

Preparation Time 30 min
Serves 4-5

  2. I have never tried almonds with my tomato soup - I am tempted to try it. I usually add some cheddar cheese and love the melting texture/taste but almonds are much more healthier
    Thanks for the idea
