Tomato soup

How about some hot hot soup? tomato soup?A nice warm starter to the main course isnt it? Well I love tomato soup...

 Soups are something we make often here especially for my son .... Lil Aniket.....Not that he adores it....or has more than a few how we say ''some thing is always better than nothing....''so i religiously make it often at home for him.....

Well the tomato soup recipes I viewed on the net were all different from each other....I have included the variations in the notes below.....I added  some capsicum to my Tomato soup....And it really tasted goood....Well it tasted goood without the capsicums too...............


Tomato-2-3 medium sized(I used 2)
Beetroot-1/2 of small sized
Potato-1 small
Onion-1/2 of one medium sized
Garlic-2 cloves
Cinnamon -1 inch peice
Butter-2 tbsp
Capsicum-1/4 chpped
Pepper to taste


Take some butter and fry onions,whole garlic cloves, cloves and cinnamon.

Saute capsicum in little butter seperately till soft and keep aside

Add onions,cloves and cinnamon to  tomatoes, betroot and potato and pressure cook.(3 whistles)

Grind the mixture after adding capsicum

Strain the mixture and  boil the strained tomato soup adding a little butter

Sprinkle pepper and salt and serve hot.


You can add the sauted capsicum to the vegetables and pressure cook it with the other vegetables instead of adding it while grinding.

You can use just a piece of  carrot instead of betroot used.

Some add 2 tbsp of  split yellow gram dal(split  yellow moong dal )

Add 1 tsp corn flour mixed with water to thicken soup

Some add 1/2 inch ginger chopped while cooking vegetables

Sprinkling dried basil leaves adds to the taste.

Celery -2 inch stock can be added while frying vegetables

Some add ½ of 1 red capsicum roasted  with vegetables.
