Carrot Tomato soup



Soups are always considered to be healthy dish which should be included in our daily diet and If the soup is prepared at home from fresh tomatoes and carrots which are rich in vitamin A & C  then it becomes more nutritious . My kid is very fussy about food and she does not like the ready to cook soups available in market so I was experimenting with different types of soups and I found this soup to be more effective regarding health as well as taste. Its Sweet and tangy taste makes it more delicious.

Ingredients:
8 to 10 Tomatoes
2  carrots (grated)
5 to 6 Clove Garlic
1 Green chili
2 to 3 Baby corn (Optional)
Salt(as per taste)
1 tsp.Sugar(as per taste)
1/2 tsp.Pepper powder
1 tsp.Corn flour
Butter
Fresh Cream
Method:

1 Wash the vegetables (Tomato & Baby corn) and put in a Pressure cooker. Add grated Carrots, Garlic and green chili, Salt and a cup of water to the Pressure Cooker. Now pressure cook it for 8 to 10 minutes(3 whistles).
2. Take it out in a vessel and peel off the tomatoes. Now put all the vegetable (except Baby corn) and stock into a blender and blend properly and the strain it through a strainer so as to remove the tomato seed. The soup mixture is now ready to cook. Slice the Baby corn and keep aside.
3. Heat butter in a pan and add the soup mixture.  Add sliced Baby corn, pepper powder , Sugar and salt if required. Now mix a tsp. Corn flour in 1/2 cup of water and add that to the soup. Stir continuously until the soup becomes little thick and the volume is reduced.

Serve in a Soup Bowl and Garnish with Fresh Cream and coriander leaves.
