Tomato Soup

This is a spicy tomato soup which can be had during any time of the day and perfect with breadsticks..We had this for dinner along with garlic bread and it served a meal in itself.It can be had when one is down with cold..Here is the recipe..


Tomatoes - 4 or 5
Onions - 1 small size
Red Bell pepper - 1 (optional)
Garlic - 2 cloves
Ginger - 1/2 inch
Chilli powder - 1 teaspoon
Bay leaf - 1
Cloves - 2
Salt and pepper to taste
Butter - spoon
Tomato ketchup - 1 tablespoon (optional)


Heat the butter in a large saucepan, add the bay leaf and cloves and saute for a minute.Then add the chopped ginger,garlic,onion and saute until they soften.

Then add the bell pepper,chopped tomatoes, chilli powder, salt and pepper and bring them to a boil..Simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes until it turns mushy..

Discard the bay leaf and cloves and transfer the ingredients to a blender.Blend it into a smooth paste..Strain again if needed..Stir in the tomato ketchup..

Serve hot with croutons or bread/soupsticks of your choice...
