Post image for Tomato Soup Recipe – an unusual one!

During Diwali time I really really miss my home and family back in India. I had very precious and joyful diwali times in childhood. Do you ever have had deal with firecrackers? I had a lot. I never have had a fear of big bomb. In short, I enjoyed it fullest with my bro-sis. Sigh! now, our life has scattered us here and there. My lovely younger sister is another corner, my younger brother is also in different corner and so I am. My mom-dad in India desperately misses their children! Especially my mom! She feels a big void in her life. What can we do? Such a life…it must go on!

Long time back, I posted Mix Vegetable Pulav, where I did mention about Tomato Soup. Sometimes I like to change with food and love to break the usual pair. ;) In previous post, I’ve shared Gujarati Kadhi but you should try this soup too. It’s very very easy to make, can be done in minutes and yes, it’s very delicious and tasty.

Hope you like it!

    wow, love that first click! this is so much like saar.. not exactly, but it reminds me a lot of tomato saar. the whole meal with pulav and saar is so comforty for this rainy weather we are in (reminds me you are actually on a sunny corner right now!)

  • Truly an usual one, a cross between the tomato soup and our own dear Rasam. But I am sure it would be great to have in winter evenings!

  • Cham

    The story is pretty same in my side, most of them are in Europe, my parents alone for all festivals! The click is vibrant and colorful!

  • We are all in the same boat as far as strike of nostalgia during festivals…no charm in celebrating alone.
    I loved this simple soup…more like a rasam recipe but excellent:)
