Thank you so much to her for a such yummy recipe

Ginger 1/2 c m piece chopped
Pepper powder 1/2 tsp
Sugar 1TBSP
Salt to taste

Preparation:

Wash and make 3-4 pices of tomatoes,chop the carrot and onion.

Cook it with little water.(if you want a thick soup then use very less water).After 5 min add chopped garlic and ginger and cook till they are tender (around 5-10 minutes).

Once done cool the cooked tomatoes and take out the skin of tomato and run it in the juicer and make smooth paste. Strain it through a strainer. (I have not strained as it turned very smooth puree)



Transfer the strained soup to a pan. Add salt, sugar and pepper powder. Adjust the thickness of the soup by adding a little water.Bring to boil. Serve hot.....
