Tomato Vegetable Soup

The rain is falling each and every day. The rain I like because I don't have to water the plants but clothes?? There like two days before drying up and the other I don't like is the wet puddles on the road, the crawl on the road and cars breaking down right in the centre of the road. Sorry for the car owners and sorry for those who are stuck in the traffic jam as well. But the greatest happiness, "haze gone away and please haze, do not return". Rainy days as always the calling for soups. Soups - anyone can make and anything goes in. This soup -  "yummo" for the cosy-comfy weather and the weather - how nice we can sleep-sleep and do nothing. But food we need and this vegetable soup you may not love but I'm sure you will like

2 tomatoes - sliced thinly
1/2 carrot - cubed into medium size pieces
1 potato - cubed into medium size pieces
10 French beans - remove strings and slice into 1/2 inch length
1/4 cauliflower - cut into florets
1 bay leaf
1 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
4 shallots - sliced
1 inch ginger - sliced
1 tbsp butter
2-3 sprigs coriander leaves - sliced
1-2 sprigs springs onions - sliced
3-4 cups vegetable stock (more or less depending on how soupy your prefer)
Pepper and salt to taste
Heat butter, sauté shallots and ginger with cumin seeds and bay leaves.
Add tomatoes, stir for a couple of minutes.
Pour stock and add potato and carrot. 
Simmer over low heat till both are half cooked.
Add caulis and French beans.
Continue to simmer till veggies are soften (to a texture you prefer)
Season with pepper and salt.
Off the heat and garnish with spring onion and coriander leaves before serving.
