Tomato beetroot soup



Feeling under the weather?
What is the next solution?
No better answer to any woes, that a good comforting bowl of soup. 

Easy on the palate and tummy. 



Let me cook up an easy nutritious yet delicious soup. It looks like an ordinary tomato soup but it has more than just tomato in it.

Ingredients

4 tomatoes
1 onion
A small piece of bottle gourd ( doodhi )
I carrot 
2 garlic pods
4 peppercorns
1 beetroot
dollop of Butter
Pinch  of Sugar
Salt to taste 


Method

1. Roughly chop all the above vegetables, keeping half a beetroot aside after grating it. 
2.  Put all the vegetables in a cooker along with peppercorns and garlic. Give two to three whistles.
3. Open the pressure cooker and let the vegetables cool down.
4.  Add the vegetables to a mixer and spin to make a puree.
5. Add the puree along with the vegetable stock to the saucepan and put to boil again.
6. Now take butter in another pan and add the grated beetroot.
7. Add this to the soup, cook till thick consistency.
8. Toast some bread with butter and that can be a great way to enjoy it. 

Tips
1.Strain only if necessary or then the fibre gets thrown away.
 2.Avoid maida bread sticks, you can make a whole wheat chappati crisp on tava ( Khakra) and enjoy along with the bowl of soup.
3. Add garlic to the butter if you like a more garlicky taste.
