Tomato soup is my all times favorite soup, ingredients are also easily available in each and every pantry. So anyone can make it anytime he/she desires. There are lot of versions of making tomato soup, I made it in a easiest way; yet it is too tasty and flavorful. So, here is the recipe of ever popular tomato soup with creamy touch.
3 Cups of Tomato Cubes (take red & ripened tomatoes)
1/2 Cup Tomato Puree
1 tbsp Corn Flour
3-4 Black Peppercorns
2 Pods of Garlic, Crushed (optional)
1 Bay Leaf
1/4 tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper (according to taste)
2 tsps Sugar
2 tsps Fresh Cream (for garnishing)
2 tbsps Butter
Salt to taste
Heat a deep fry pan. Add tomato cubes, garlic, bay leaf, black peppercorns and 1&1/2 cups water in it. Cover and cook for 10-12 minutes on lower medium heat, till tomatoes turn mushy.
Turn off the heat and let it cool down a little. Pour everything on a mixer jar. Grind it to make a smooth paste. Now strain the mixture and keep it aside.
Heat butter in a pan now. Add tomato paste in it. Dissolve 1 tbsp corn flour in 1 cup water and pour it on the pan. Add sugar, tomato puree, salt and ground black pepper in it. Let it boil for 4-5 minutes on low heat. Turn off the heat now. Tomato soup is ready to serve.
Divide it equally in two bowls, topped with 1 tsp fresh cream to each and serve immediately with bread sticks.
NOTES: Instead of using water, may use chicken or vegetable broth, that surely makes soup more healthier and tastier.
