tomato and carrot soup
This soup is very light,healthy and simple clear soup,perfect for the cold weather here with less ingredients,my daughter specially luves this tomato & carrot combination soup and she keeps saying me to make this everynow and then.When she was not well a couple of weeks back i made this for her and it really helped her in all means.She liked sipping the soup whole day and i was relieved a bit.
for 2 ppl
2-3 medium size tomatoes ( preferable little ripened )
1 large carrot or 2 small ones
black pepper pwd to taste
roasted cumin pwd to taste
salt to taste
butter to taste ,optional
chopped corriander / basil leaves to garnish ( optional)
Wash tomatoes and carrots,cut tomatoes in quaters,dont peel the carrot ,just knock off both the ends and cut into medium size pieces.Pressure cook tomatoes and carrots with little water and cook till tender (around 2-3 whistles ).Let it cool,grind and strain them into thick puree,add little water if required.Boil the puree for few mins,add pepper pwd ,cumin pwd and salt and mix well.Add a blob of butter and serve hot.
