TOMATO SOUP RECIPE | EASY SOUP RECIPES

 Soups are generally loved by everyone at home. Tomato soup is a simple one and my kids will have this without any complaints. Especially during rainy time or cold weather, nothing beats the combo of a hot soup with toasted garlic bread. Here is my version of cream of tomato soup recipe.  The bread croutons i used for serving is store bought, but you can make the bread croutons at home.

Notes:
  1. Adding moong dal and milk it gives a  creamy texture. If not adding moong dal we can add a tsp of corn flour mixed with water to make the soup thick.
  2. You can add a piece of beetroot while cooking and discard this after it is cooked. This gives nice colour to the soup.
  3. Use nice red ripe tomatoes for the soup.
