Tomato - Carrot Soup

There are days when Lil Angel specifically asks for some dish.Though this is rare,meaning, she usually likes to have what the rest of us eat, but when she does ask I am over joyed.

One such joyous moment was when she wanted tomato soup with carrot. I tried to ask her the difference -if she wanted carrot soup or tomato soup, but she replied tomato soup with carrot. So I put both the veggies together and made this soup which she relished....

This soup is a good source of vitamins and a very healthy one too. And,there is not a drop of oil in this recipe!I did not stain the soup.You can do it if you don't like bits of tomato in the soup...

I used :

Ripe and juicy tomatoes - 2
Carrot - 1, medium sizes
Coriander leaves-a few
Garlic- 2 pods
Salt to taste
Freshly cracked pepper to taste
Mint leaves to garnish

  1. Pressure cook roughly chopped tomato and carrot along with a little coriander leaves and garlic pods.[Add a little water to the vessel in which the vegetables are being cooked and cook for 10 minutes or till carrots are soft.]
  2. Once the pressure releases, remove from the pressure cooker and allow to cook.Puree the mixture.
  3. Heat the puree in a pan.Add water to get the desired consistency
  4. Serve hot / warm with salt and a dash of freshly cracked pepper, garnished with mint leaves.

Bon Appetit...
