Hot soups and winter go together!! We don’t need any occasion for soup, though if you are suffering with bad cold, drink any hot soup and take a long afternoon nap – you will feel much better.
During winter season when kids are back from school you can serve them hot soup accompanied by any bread, toast or sandwich. Apoorva loves to have her favorite cheese sandwich with soup and now as bright red sweet carrots are available in Bangalore, I decided to prepare carrot tomato soup flavoured with dry and fresh mint leaves!
200 gm carrots
300 gm tomatoes
1 cup water for boiling
1/2 tsp black pepper powder
Dry mint powder
Fresh mint leaves
2 cups water
Chop carrots and tomatoes and boil them with 1 cup of water till carrots become soft.
After boiling, let them cool down and later grind in mixer.
Sieve the pulp in a strainer, add 2 cups of water and boil this for 10-15 minutes on sim heat. Add salt.
Once soup is done, transfer it in a serving bowl and add dry mint powder and black pepper powder.
The color of soup will slightly change by adding black pepper and dry mint powder. While serving in soup bowls you can add some more dry mint powder and cream.
