Spicy Tomato Soup

"After some looking at different recipes, I thought I would experiment with making an Indian Tomato Soup, as I once had in a restaurant. This comes close. Warning! Indian Chili powder is much spicier than your ordinary store-bought."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat; stir in onions and bay leaves, and cook about 5 minutes until the onions begin to soften. Add flour, ginger-garlic paste, garam masala, turmeric, and Indian chili powder. Cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  2. Pour the water into the pan, and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom with a wooden spoon. Pour in the tomato puree and thin with additional water to desired consistency. Add sugar and salt; cook until sugar is dissolved and soup is hot, about 5 minutes.
  3. Remove bay leaves and serve with cream if desired.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • Substitute 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper for 1 tablespoon of Indian chili powder.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

This is good, but I really like the Thai version of this http://trialbyfirewin.blogspot.com/2012/01/thai-spiced-tomato-soup.html

I used some ginger and garlic separately as I didnt have ginger garlic paste. I also used regular chili powder. I didn't have a can of whole tomatoes, so I crushed them with a hand blender. Work...

This is quite something (I've modded with a mix of coconut milk/heavy cream). Also fresh cilantro that I needed to use up. I plan to make a batch of this and add cream before microwaving. Nee...

I just made this...it's quite tasty and easy to make! The only modifications I made were adding a half tsp of coriander powder, and I cut the amount of chili powder I used (from an Indian grocer...
