How to Make Tomato Soup at Home - Indian Style

I am Crazy about Tomato Soup, which my grandmother used to make with loads of vegetables in it. apart from that, when i wrote a story for the first time at my class 7, has Tomato Soup played an important role. to brief the story here, the girl in the story drinks lots of tomato soup and suffers from stomach ache and the girl's sister gets caught in trouble while going out to get medicine. though it sounds funny now, the memories are as bright as the soup color!

Indian Style Tomato Soup

While speaking about the bright red color of the soup, it all comes from a small bit of beetroot. that's a trick i got from Suganya's Tasty Pallette.
