Tomato Soup

I love soups and paired with a light sandwich ar a simple toasted bread can make it a complete meal. Tomato Soup is something which was always ordered in our visits to restaurant, it is only from past some years that we have a array of soups of available. My personal fav is Hot And Sour and will post the recipe for that as well very soon. This is a very easy and simple preparation and you can make it to suite your taste. For a more profound color add some cubes of beetroot and it will give you a darker color. This is also a fat free one as i have not added any butter or added flour to thicken it. 

Tomato Soup


Ripe Red Tomatoes 5

Onion 1

Split yellow moong dal 2 tbsp


Pepper 1 tsp

Sugar 1 tsp if reqd.

Water 1/4 cup

Milk 1/4 cup


Chop tomatoes and onion into big chunks.

Place them in a cooker along with the dal and water and pressure cook for 3 whistles.

Let cool and blend the mixture into a puree.

Strain the mixture to get a smooth puree  (You can skip this step as well , but i like a smoother consistency)

Transfer to a pan and add salt, pepper and milk and simmer till it gets to a boil.

Taste the soup and if you feel there is a  tartness of the tomatoes add the sugar.

Serve hot.

Pinks Notes:

I also add carrots or beetroots sometime while cooking it.

You can also add a single star anise to get a different flavor.
