Tamatar Shorba (Tomato Soup)

Cold winter evenings in Bangalore call for a pot of steaming soup. I love the desi tamatar shorba. It can be made in a thick or thin consistency with whole Indian spices. 

You will need:

4-5 ripe firm tomatoes
1 Onion
2-3 pods of garlic
1 green chilli
Half tbs whole pepper
Bay leaf
A pinch of garam masala powder
Fresh coriander

In a pan, fry the spices with a little oil. Add the green chili, garlic and onions and fry lightly. Toss in cubed tomato chunks, garam masala powder and fry further. Add water and bring to a boil.. Once it has cooled completely, blend in a mixer. Let the puree simmer for a bit, add salt and a pinch of sugar. Garnish with lots of coriander.
