Ingredients for making Cream of Tomato Soup:


Firm and well Ripened Tomatoes of normal size 8
Onion normal size chopped 2
Garlic pods 3 (Optional)
Carrot 1
Cloves 4
Cinnamon stick pieces 2
Cardamom pod 1
Pepper powder 2 tea spoons
Salt to taste
Sugar 1 tea spoon
Milk 200 ml (Boiled and well cooled)
Corn flour 2 tb spoons
All purpose flour 1 tb spoon
Butter 2 tb spoons




How to make Cream of Tomato Soup?


Take a pressure pan and heat it with a table spoon of butter. When it melts fry the cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom pod for a while and add the onions,garlic and carrot and stir for a minute, Then add the chopped tomatoes and stir well. Add required salt and a tea spoon of sugar and close it with a lid. Pressure cook up to 3 or 4 whistles.


After the steam is released, allow the stuff to cool down. Then grind them to fine paste in a mixie or blender. Add some water and transfer the stuff to a heavy bottomed vessel and allow to boil. Add required amount of fine pepper powder too. When the soup is getting boiled take 100 ml of milk and add the cornflour to it and mix well without lumps.
















Transfer this mixture to the boiling stuff and keep stirring just for a minute. It becomes thick and creamy. Switch off immediately. If boiled longer, it will curdle since milk will start to react with the salt.


In a small pan melt butter in low flame. Add the all purpose flour to it and keep stirring for few seconds. Add a cup of milk and stir. The cream is ready to decorate the soup now. 










If you have store bought fresh cream you can use it. Fry the bread squares in ghee or oil and keep ready in advance to garnish. I usually grill the bread on both sides in microwave oven, cut and add to the soup.
