Homemade Tomato Soup Recipe
This is my family's favourite soup, so I prepare it frequently. I do not like buying ready made soup packets and always prefer to prepare it at home with fresh ingredients. This is very simple and easy to prepare and also a very common soup. I simply adore this soup for its flavor. A bowl of steaming hot homemade soup topped with cream is one of the most comforting foods for me.
Big juicy tomatoes -4
Onion -1 medium chopped
Garlic - 3 cloves chopped
Pepper powder and salt to taste
Butter- 2 tsp
All purpose flour/maida - 3/4 tsp
Bread croutons - (optional)
Heat butter in a pan,fry garlic and onions.
Add chopped tomatoes, 1 cup of water, salt and pressure cook for 1 whistle.
After it cools, puree it in a blender.
Strain the blended mixture in a soup strainer to remove seeds and skin.
Melt a little butter in a pan, add maida to it and cook for a few seconds on low flame. Keep stirring. Maida is added to thicken the soup.
Now add the blended mixture little by little to the above while constantly stirring the maida.
(This is done to prevent formation of lumps)
Reheat the soup, check for salt. Add needed pepper powder and serve it topped with cream and fried bread croutons. Enjoy a bowl of hot steaming homemade soup!!
Note -If u do not have a pressure cooker, you can cook it in an open pan.
