has been raining in Bangalore for like ever and its super awesome weather here.
It gets quite chilly sometimes surprisingly at this time of the year God knows
what’s in store for December. And I am again down with a running nose and cough
– It has become a monthly affair almost.
what’s better than some hot piping soup in this weather to keep my throat happy?
Okay the Knorrs, and Chings and Maggi soups are little mainstream – nothing beats
the old fashioned freshly made soups minus the corn flour. I am a big fan of
fresh soups whenever I have time.
here goes a simple recipe of a rustic tomato soup for all the soup lovers. And
yeah it’s thick and no the watery kinds.
oil – 1 table spoon - you can use Olive/Vegetable
– 4 large - diced
– 4 cloves
4. Red onion
– 1 large chopped – you can use white onion also
& pepper – to taste
– ¼ tspn
– I have used dried basil about 1 tspn. If you have fresh basil then
nothing like it.
purpose flour – 2 teaspoon
– 1 teaspoon
10. Fresh Cream - 1 tspn (totally optional)
a large pot, heat oil and fry the onions and crushed garlic
- Add the
diced tomatoes in the pot and mix them well till they are juicy and gooey.
the tomato is cooked take a hand blender and blend it well. Transfer the
mixture in a bowl and set aside.
some butter and let it melt. Add the flour and fry it in the butter to make the
rue. This will give a very nice flavor and will add a good texture to the soup.
It will also make it thick.
your soup to this rue and mix well so that there are no lumps.
seasoning and herbs and mix well.
- Add a little fresh cream on top and serve
hot with croutons/ toast or just enjoy it as it is.
hey you are done before you can think anything else.
Wasn’t that easy? I am
sure you’ll enjoy.
Let me know.
