A broth based flavorful tomato soup with Basil & Coriander
Ingredients
  • 4-5 medium sized tomatoes (chopped)
  • 1 tsp Roasted cumin powder
  • 1 small carrot (chopped)
  • 4 cloves of garlic (crushed and chopped)
  • 1 small sized Apple (peeled and cut in cubes)
  • 50 grams Coriander roots (don't use the leaves)
  • Salt according to taste
  • ¾ tsp Kashmiri chili powder
  • Black pepper (dash of it)
  • Olive oil to saute (2 tbsp)
  • 1 tsp dried Basil
Instructions
  1. In a pan, heat oil and add chopped garlic. Allow the oil to absorb the garlic flavor.
  2. Saute the garlic slowly and after a few seconds add the tomatoes, carrot, apple, salt, Kashmiri chili powder.
  3. Add water and cook them for 45 minutes till the vegetables get tender and mashed.
  4. Add the chopped coriander roots with pepper and cook for another two minutes.
  5. Blend the mixture using a blender and strain with a soup strainer if you want a clear soup.
  6. Else, you can keep the soup chunky and thick without straining it (that's my preference).
  7. Heat the soup again and add Basil and adjust the salt according to your taste.
  8. Serve hot!
