Tomato Soup Recipe

Tomato soup is my husband’s favorite soup and also mine. This soup is a very common and popular in Indian restaurants. This recipe is so quick to make.

This recipe is a hearty, healthy and protein packed homemade tomato Soup. Tomato soup is perfect for any time of the year; it’s particularly wonderful to have a steaming bowl of soup in cold winter.

A bowl of piping hot homemade soup topped with cream is one of the most comforting foods for me.
