Tomato soup was the first and only soup( of course after rasam) that I have tasted during my early childhood.We used to love this soup along with some warm toasted bread. We later got introduced to other fancy soups. But this still continues to be my favourite among all the other soups. And now I have seen, though I try to feed different varieties of soups to my kid, he loves only the mildly tangy tomato soup with the cream and croutons. The good old tomato soup!!!
Boil the tomatoes in water for around 10 minutes till it turns very soft. Place it on a sieve and using your fingers or a spoon, squeeze out the pulp into a vessel. Discard the seeds and skin.
Heat oil in a pan. Add ginger garlic paste. Now add the pulp along with a glass of water. Add salt and pepper and allow it to boil for 5 minutes. Now dissolve the corn flour in little water.Add this to the boiling soup and stir till it thickens.
You can add some cream before serving. Serve warm along with some toasted bread.
