Tomato-soup-recipe

       As I have mentioned in my recent Sweet corn soup recipe, Tomato soup is my favourite and this recipe is one easy recipe with no fancy items, just you can make it with the ingredients in your kitchen any time. There are a lot of versions for tomato soup recipe. This is one among that, my version Happy. Apart from the tomato soup recipes we get in Indian restaurants, I love the tomato soup we get in subway. I love it for the rich cheesy and herb flavour in that one. This tomato soup recipe is also very flavourful in its own way. Adding a little beetroot is the tip to get nice bright red, apart from choosing red ripe tomatoes. My kid is also not big fan of soups. After all our eating habits affect our kids a lot, so he is also like that. Only tomato soup he likes. More than the soup, he likes the bread croutonsWinking.

Easy Tomato soup recipe

Indian Starter
Prep Time: 5 mins    |  Cook time: 25 mins    Serves: 2

Ingredients

Red ripe tomatoes 4
Beetroot 2 small slices
Garlic 3-4 flakes
Bay leaf 1
Butter 1 tblsp
Salt As needed
Black pepper As needed
Sugar 1 tsp
Corn flour 1 tsp
Cream(Optional) To garnish
Coriander leaves 1 tblsp


Method

  1. In a small pressure cooker or pressure pan, heat butter and add bay leaves, roughly chopped garlic. Add the tomatoes, beetroot and  1 cup water.1-tomato
  2. Pressure cook for 2 whistles and without disturbing much, take out the tomato skin which by now will come easily by itself. Discard the skin. Take out the bay leaf. If you want you can transfer to a sauce pan (another vessel to boil the soup) or continue with the cooker as well. I used my immersion blender to grind. If using mixie, cool down and blend without water.2-tomato
  3. Strain this through a metal strainer to remove the seeds. You can use little water if you need. Again start heating the soup with the bay leaf, sugar and salt.3-tomato-soup
  4. Boil for 3-4 minutes. Add the corn flour mixed with 1 tblsp water and mix well. Boil until thick consistency reaches. Season generously with black pepper, adjust salt and garnish with coriander leaves. Add cream in top if desired.4-tomato
Notes
    • I added about 2 slices of beetroot in size of two potato wedges.
    • Add pepper generously or the soup will be so tangy.

       Serve hot always. Top with bread croutons or serve with golden roasted bread toastDrooling. Dip the toast in the soup and eat… Heavenly!

  51. Hey Raks,

    I came across your tomato soup recipe and it was great! It is so far one of the few tomato soup recipe that requires no artificial flavoring or sweetness.

    I made some variations to the soup by substituting half of the tomato with carrots (referred to your carrot soup recipe) and left out beetroot, bay leaf, cream or corn flour as the soup adhered nicely and was creamy and thick enough! :)

    Added more water throughout the process as it evaporated quite fast. I put it to a boil first before simmering the soup for the next 20-30 minutes. So that the carrot and tomato were soft enough to be blended smoothly.

    Thanks so much for sharing and look forward to your other innovations!
