tomato soup recipe

Tomato soup recipe explained with step by step pictures. Tomato soup is prepared using tomato, garlic, onion and cornflour. Tomato soup is a healthy and tasty drink. Tomato soup is very easy to prepare with minimum ingredients.

I have used a tsp of cornflour in this tomato soup recipe. If you do not have cornflour, you can substitute it with a small piece of potato or a tsp of maida. But if you want to use potato then you need to add it with carrot and tomato. And if you want to use maida then you need to prepare white sauce using maida, butter and little milk. It is very easy to prepare white sauce, which I have already explained in white sauce pasta recipe.

Tomatoes are less expensive now. So If you are looking for more recipes using tomato then check my tomato bath, tomato salad, tomato pickle and tomato rasam recipes.
