Turmeric Tomato Soup (Indian Style)

Turmeric is a significant ingredient for Indian dishes. It creates an orangish yellowish hue, infuses a warm and earthy flavour as well as works wonderfully well to remove the odour of any kind of meat, poultry and seafood. This simple vegetarian soup is enhanced with turmeric and elevated with tomatoes and cumin seeds.

2 large tomatoes - chopped
1 tsp turmeric/kunyit powder
5 garlic - crushed
1 red onion - sliced thinly
1 tsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp oil
2 stalks of coriander leaves - sliced
pepper and salt to taste

Add tomatoes, crushed garlic and turmeric into a pot with 1/2 liter of water.
Let it simmer until heated through.
Into a frying pan, heat oil.
When heated, fry the onions until light brown in color.
Put in cumin seeds and coriander leaves.
Quickly stir and pour over the heated soup.
Stir all in and off the heat.
