When you think of the word Soup the first soup that comes to mind is that of tomatoes. Being the very basic of the Soup Recipes, it has a lot of variations. A lot of recipes use sugar & corn flour for the rich creamy thick texture and taste. The restaurant style tomato soup sure does taste amazing but certainly is not a healthy food.
Tomatoes are referred to as Tamatar (टमाटर) in Hindi. This recipe uses the very basic of ingredients i.e. tomatoes, onion, garlic, salted butter, salt, black pepper powder & water. It is an amazing keto recipe. The soup turns out rich and creamy exactly like the restaurant style creamy tomato soup but without using sugar and corn flour. The sweetness of the onions balances the sourness of the tomatoes. This soup is delectable, filling and is an essential part of the every balanced diet & weight loss program.
So without further delay let us start making this toothsome Soup.
When the butter melts, add 6 Pcs Garlic Cloves & 2 Pcs Finely Chopped Onions. Saute garlic and onions for 2 to 3 minutes on medium flame. Saute till the onions turn light pink in color.
When the Onions turn light pink in color add 5 Pcs Roughly Chopped Tomatoes & 2 Tsp. Salt.
Mix well and cook on medium flame for approximately 10 minutes. Keep stirring in between.
Tomatoes go soft and mushy after 10 minutes of cooking. Add three cups of water at this point.
Cover and pressure cook on high flame for 3 whistles.
Tomatoes are completely cooked after 3 whistles. Turn the heat off after 3 whistles.
Blend for approximately 1 minute or till you get a smooth puree.
Strain the soup after blending to filter the pulp that remains after blending. This would give a soup with smooth consistency. The resulting soup is thick and creamy. The sweetness of the onions is balanced by the sourness of the tomatoes.
After straining add 1 Tsp. Black Pepper powder and mix well.
Boil again for 1 to 2 minutes on high flame.
Dish out and serve. You can garnish with fresh cream.
Serve with Garlic Bread, Soup Sticks or Bread Croutons. For keto eat without the bread.
