Tomatoes are so popular since ages and used in each and every kitchen for sure.  Tomato soup was a request recipe from many of my viewers since a long time.  This is a very popular soup among the Indians.  It is loved by all and very easy to make too.  Make sure it is served with fried bread croutons and will be very crunchy to relish!!!

Time taken: 45 minutes

Serves 3-4

Note: 1. Use ripe and pulpy  tomatoes for the dish for best results and flavour.

2. I have used a piece of beetroot for natural  colour.

3. Using bread croutons is one’s option.

4. Using cream for garnishing is also one’s option.  I did not want it to be rich so i  have avoided.
