Easy Tomato Soup
A super duper easy recipe that can be made Just Like That. Every one is fond of a hot bowl of Soup. This Soup just has only few ingredients that are available easily in the kitchen. I have served this Soup piping hot with Jhat Phat Paneer Stir Fry and Toasted Bread.
An ideal breakfast combo. Monsoon time, make varieties of SOUPS and enjoy with your FAMILY.

1) Can add little butter to the soup while garnishing.
2) Do not make the soup very watery. The Soup tastes great if it is thick.
3) Only use the spices in minimum quantities. The flavours are excellent. Do not use too much of black pepper. It becomes overpowering and very spicy.
