Turmeric Tomato Soup (Indian Style)


It is one thing to happily cook, the other is what shall we cook.  Oh-god, the major killer I suppose is where to begin for the day. Every now and then, I really don't care who is going to scream unhappily over the food I cook. I cook, they better eat ((Dhal Bitter Gourd Curry). If I can eat my self-cooked food daily (Malaysian Vegetarian Panini), what's the complaint then (Vegetable Green Curry) even if I keep it simple as possible (Cumin Rice, Cucumber Yogurt Salad & Vegetarian Noodle Soup)?? Just the other day, I made this turmeric tomato soup (Corn Soup & Hot Masala Lentil Soup) which may be perceived as so ordinary, let me tell you that it is packed with healthy punch-me-punch-you healthiness (Yogurt Rasam). A vegetarian version indeed (Mee Rebus Vegetarian & Mee Rojak Vegetarian), I am calling out to vegetarians and non-vegetarians as well. Who ever said vegetarian food is boring and tasteless (Vegetable Achar, Vegetable Kurma & Vegetarian Mutton Currry)? Please don't talk too much until and unless you try this turmeric tomato soup. Bright turmeric hue, mild sour tinge from tomatoes and scented alongside cumin seeds and coriander leaves. Call me once you tuck in okay??

Ingredients
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

Method
Add tomatoes, crushed garlic and turmeric into a pot with 1/2 liter of water.
Simmer over low heat till heated through.
Into a frying pan, heat oil.
When heated, fry onion 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.
Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!!
