Tomato-Carrot Soup


Today I am going to share one long awaited post, the recipe of a soup- Tomato Carrot Soup.Tomato Carrot Soup

As its name illustrates, it has two main ingredients tomatoes and carrots which have blended so compatibly. The resultant thick soup spiced with curry powder & cumin was having a punching bit spicy-sour taste. That was making it an irresistible scrumptious & filling soup.

Recipe-

Time Taken- For Preparation-10 min

For Cooking-20 min

Category- Soup

Servings- 2-3 small bowls

Ingredients-

Olive Oil-1 tbsp

Garlic- 1 large clove (chopped)

Shallots- 2 (chopped)

Tomatoes- 2 large sized (whole)

Carrots- 2 large (peeled and cubed small)

Vegetable Stock– 2 cups (each of 250 ml)

Yellow Curry Powder- 1¼ tsp

Cumin Powder- 1 tsp

Salt-to taste

Steps to follow-

  1. Wash, peel and cube carrots small. Then wash tomatoes and keep them whole but mark a shallow cross with knife on opposite side of their eye-spots.
  2. Take a medium-small saucepan and place it on medium-high flame. Add in olive oil and heat it; then put in garlic & shallots. Sauté it for a while.
  3. Now add one cup of vegetable stock in it; following it add cubed carrots and whole tomatoes.
  4. Let them boil and then simmer closed until carrots soften and tomatoes also become soft & start leaving their outer skin.
  5. Take out tomatoes and peel off their skin with the help of cut-cross mark. Then put them in a blender along with carrots and vegetable stock.
  6. Blend it until smooth.
  7. Again put that smoothened mixture in that saucepan with one more cup of vegetable stock and add in yellow curry powder, cumin powder & salt.
  8. Simmer it for 8-10 min. Take it off from flame and serve hot garnished with spring onion greens.
