We have made it using minimum of ingredients. To make creamy tomato soup, you need to cook tomatoes with half cup of water and whole spices like bay leaf and pepper corn, all the ingredients are cooked together and once cooked bay leaf is discarded. It is all cooled and blended in a mixer. Then we have added butter in a deep non-stick pan, add the plain flour and sauté.

Everyone in my family loves tomato soup and we also make it when we wish having something very light for dinner! Cream of Tomato Soup is a choice that perfectly pleases the Indian palate. A combination of tomato puree and freshly cooked tomatoes are combined with spices and blended into a rich soup, which is made all the more luxuriant by the addition of fresh cream.

In addition, some easy tips and recommendations while preparing the cream of tomato soup recipe. I would emphasise to use ripe and juicy tomatoes and avoid raw or hard tomatoes. Ripe tomatoes would yield more creamy and coloured soup and with raw you may end up with bitter taste.

Garnish tomato soup with fresh cream and serve hot with fried croutons.

How to make cream of tomato soup

  1. To prepare cream of tomato soup | Indian style cream of tomato soup | creamy tomato soup, in a deep non-stick pan, take tomatoes. Firstly, make use of red ripe tomatoes to extract maximum flavours and not have a sour soup, next, wash and clean them & remove the eye before chopping them
  2. Add 1 cup of water. Instead of water you can even make use of vegetable stock.
  3. Add bayleaf.
  4. Add peppercorns. I love tossing in some onions and garlic for an added flavour.
  5. Mix well and cook on a medium flame for 8 to 10 minutes or until the tomatoes have softened and lost their raw aroma, while stirring occasionally.
  6. After cooking, remove the bayleaf and discard it.
  7. Allow the mixture to cool completely and transfer to a mixer jar
  8. Blend the mixture in a mixer till smooth consistency
  9. Strain it using a strainer to remove fibres and seeds from the tomatoes.
  10. To prepare creamy tomato soup, heat the butter in a deep non-stick pan. Also, you can make use of oil or ghee but butter provides a rich flavour
