Tomato Cumin Soup


Spices, the way to my cooking and soups, the way to my stomach for the cold weather after the heavy lashing of rain. Spices - they spice up the dishes with aroma, flavours and indeed, health benefits as well. Soups (tomato vegetable soup) just like spices, there's various types and soups, ahhh! easily made. You like meat, you add, you like vegetables, you add and if you like a pure traditional Indian soup, here we go with this tomato cumin soup - obviously, tomatoes, spices and curry leaves - oh, do add for the scent.


2 tomatoes - chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 or 2 bay leaves
1 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp ginger paste
1 tsp garlic paste
1 tbsp shallot paste
2 to 3 sprigs curry leaves - shredded/sliced thinly
2 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

Method
Saute, ginger, garlic and shallot in heated oil.
Add bay leaf, cumin seeds and tomato.
Stir till tomato becomes slightly mushy.
Pour about 3/4 liter of water and add turmeric powder.
Season with salt. 
Simmer till heated through.
Off the heat and stir in curry leaves.

  19. Tomato and Cumin are a match made in Heaven. My favourite fish curry is made of the same combination and I just can't have enough. I am sure this soup would be as delicious. Love how simple and quick it is to make!
