Tomato Soup

Tomato Soup

I love Home made soups. I think Soups are very much comforting and you feel so good after a good Bowl of Soup.

This recipe is to make the most famous Tomato Soup.


Tomato - 1 (Big, Chopped)
Onion - 1 (Medium, Chopped)
Green Bell Pepper - 1 (Medium, Chopped- Optional)
Potato - 1 (Medium, chopped - Optional)
Olive Oil - 1 Teaspoon
Black Pepper Powder - 1 Tablespoon or to taste
Butter - 2 Tablespoon
Maida - 1 Tablespoon


In a pressure cooker, add a tablespoon of Olive Oil and saute all the vegetables for 5 minutes. Then Pour water to cover the vegetables.

Cook it for 2 whistles on a medium flame and then allow the steam to go down naturally.

Then strain the veggies and water. Preserve the water. Take the cooked vegetables to a blender and make a puree.

If you want you can strain the Puree, but I did not do it.

Now In the same pressure cooker, add 2 Tablespoon of butter and Maida and Saute for 5 minutes or till the raw flavor of Maida is gone. Now switch off the stove and add the Tomato Puree into it little by little and mix it well without any lumps.

Use the Preserved water to adjust it to the required consistency.

Now Put the cooker back on the stove and cook till it begins to Boil.

Add Salt and Black pepper to taste and serve with Foccaccia or Pav.


If you don't want, you can skip the butter and Maida step completely.
