Tomato Soup

I make this soup often. Both P & I love it. It is also very easy to make and quite healthy too. So, a super-duper dish, in my opinion.

Tomatoes - 4-6 large
Onion - 1/2 large
Carrot - 1 large
Beetroot - 1/2
Celery - 2-3 stalks
Garlic - 2-3 cloves
Ginger - 1 inch
Pepper - 15-20
Cinnamon - 1 inch
Cloves - 8-10
Curry leaves - leaves from 1 big stalk
Jeera - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste

Chop vegetables, celery, ginger & garlic into medium pieces
Toss in the spices & curry leaves
Pressure cook for 4-5 whistles
Grind, sieve, add salt, boil & serve

That's really it. I usually put the spices in a small colander and then pressure cook. This makes it easy to remove the spices. Once spices are removed, this soup doesn't need to be sieved.

This soup is off to Simple Indian Food hosting the WYF - Soup / Starter / Salad event.
