Welcome to my world.Here's my confession...I am a foodaholic.I love good food.I am game for any cusine & am passionate about Indian cooking.Honestly I am not a polished home-maker.I haven't learnt the ropes of the trade the traditional way which is from my mom.I am not very fussy when it comes to food. I would relish & eat simple meal with great delight.Best way to unwind for me is with my family at home, listening to some wonderful music,good food,lots of laughter and possibily some good wine =) Join me as I share with you some wonderful recipes that I have cooked over the years for my family which I usually serve with a large dollop of love ♥.

Delicious Tomato soup

Its been raining continuously for the entire week.Kids are not keeping all that lively & well.Its on such days that you  want to bring down your soup pot & make something yummy for your kids to enjoy.Soups are an all time favourite with our family especially the kids.Today I made some tomato soup,it was really satisfying to  watch the kids savour it up & ask for a second helping =D.

Tomato Soup:

Ingredients:
Tomato-5 large
Onion-1/2 medium sized onion,chopped finely
Garlic-3-4 flakes,chopped finely
Tomato sauce/ketchup- 1tbsp
Salt-to taste
Mixed Itallian herbs- for seasoning
Butter-2tbsp
Cornflour-2 tbsp
Sugar-1tsp(optional)
Water- 2 cups

Method:
Make a  cross on the top of the tomatoes using a knife and let them boil  in a pot(add a cup of water).Take out the tomatoes when they have blanched.Remove the skin & let it cool.In a shallow pan add butter and saute the onions,garlic and salt.While this gets cooked,puree the blanched tomatoes in a blender.Strain the puree & transfer the puree into a bowl.In the same blender add the sauted onion & garlic into a smooth paste.Add this paste back into th shallow pan.Add the tomato puree,tomato sauce,salt,water(1 cup) & itallian seasoning.Let it cook for about 5 minutes.Add sugar.Make a running paste of the cornflour & 3tbsp of water.Add this to the soup.Let it simmer for 2-3 minutes.Remove from the stove-top.The soup is ready to serve.{I like to strain this since my kids donot like the seasonings}Transfer into soup bowls & serve them hot.


Do try it & let me know how it turned out with your family.

Have an awesome day !


Cheers,
Deepa
