HOMEMADE TOMATO SOUP

A simple soup that can be made in no time and has super delicious flavor, that is none other than popular tomato soup. Nothing tastes like home made fresh tomato soup which is a great appetizer with easy method. Add more crushed black pepper for a real spicy taste to the blended tomato purée,and bit of fresh cream on top of it,gives mouthwatering hot soup.





Ingredients:My serving gives is for two people

Large size Tomatoes 5(diced)
Onion 1
Grated ginger 1/4 tsp
Grated garlic 1/2 tsp
Green chili 1
Butter 2 Tbsps( May add more for extra buttery taste)
Crushed black pepper powder as per taste
A Cup of Water
Salt to taste
Bread Crountons(just few pieces,fried them with little tsp of butter)
Fresh heavy cream for topping

Method:

1. Heat the butter, in a large saucepan and saute the tomatoes,onion,Chilli ginger,garlic until they are translucent, about 5 minutes.Add a cup of water to this,make sure they are not overcooked.Turn off the heat and allow it cool.






2. Pour this into jar to make fine tomato purée.Strain this purée into large bowl.
    Boil the purée in a heated pan on low heat for just 2 mins.Bring down from heat,
    add salt,more butter and heavy cream( as per your taste).


3. Before serving drizzle with black pepper powder,fresh cream and fried bread
    bread croutons for additional taste.





My Tip: Since this soup is more on sweeter,adding more pepper is really gives a
              soothing relief.
