Tomato soup recipe - A comforting and soothing healthy drink to sip for all age people in all season. This is a tomato based thick variety soup served hot. This tomato soup is low in calories with full of flavors and taste which satisfy your taste buds.

The fresh pepper powder made by pounding the pepper in a mortar with a pestle adds a hot taste to the soup. Soup is a must liquid food, particularly during the rainy days. There are few specific kind of soups that can be made easily. Do check out some other  soup varieties.  

This hot tomato soup is made  by boiling  ingredients in water  and the flavors are extracted by cooking them soft. There are two types of soups that we can make,  the clear soups  and the thick soups. Thick soups are always my family's favorite, so I made this thick variety of soup by using corn flour as thickening ingredient and served it as a starter for the meal.  You may serve it with toast or toasted bread cubes. Try this soup and take a taste. You will like it.
