Tomato soup

Tomato soup is one of my favorite soups. I love the homemade version so much that I cant just have one cup. The butter and bread crumbs add up to the taste. Its no hassle to make it so its almost always on my menu when I have friends coming over for lunch. A bread roll or chicken thighs on the side is what we prefer. Worth a try and sure to win hearts. 

This is what u'll need....

Tomatoes 2 big
Onion 1 big
Garlic 3 big cloves
Salt to taste
Pepper 2 tbspn
Cumin seeds 1 tspn
Butter 1 tbspn
Heavy cream 1/4 cup - optional
Bread slices 3

Here is the stir....
  • Cut the bread slices into half inch cubes and fry in little butter till they are brown and crispy
  • Chop up tomatoes, onion and garlic.
  • Add it to a pressure cooker along with salt, pepper and little water
  • Cook for 5-6 whistles
  • Let it cool down and grind it to a smooth paste
  • Heat up a pan and add butter. Follow it with cumin seeds
  • When you smell the aroma add the soup mixture and bring it to a boil
  • Add the cream(optional) and boil another couple of mins
  • When serving, top it with bread crumbs
  • Some may not want the cumin seasoning and that can be skipped too
