People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy. And I’m happy when I’m snuggling with my hubby in a couch with warm blanket and slurping a hot cuppa or piping hot bowl of soup watching the world go around slowly… Winter is the best season to enjoy soups with warm freshly baked bread right out of oven. Who says winter is cold and boring? Winter must be cold for those with no warm memories. And we both have so many warm memories to share which makes our days turn into beautiful sunny day.
1 medium Onion, finely chopped
1/2 Kg ripe red Tomatoes, chopped (Now you know how much I love this soup:)
2 small tender Carrots, grated
2 Bay Leaves
2 tsp Corn Flour
1/4 cup Milk
1 tbsp Butter
Salt+Pepper+Sugar to taste
Heat butter in a pan and add bay leaf and chopped onions
Fry them for 2-3 minutes and add grated carrots
Stir this for a minute or two and then add chopped tomatoes.
Add enough water to cover the pieces and cook till tomatoes become tender
Take the pan from heat and cool down the mixture and blend it in a mixi and starin well.
Make a white sauce with milk and corn flour.
Heat the soup with salt & sugar till boiling point in reduced flame stirring in between.
Add white sauce slowly while strirring the soup.
Cook in reduced flame for few more minutes.
Serve hot sprinkled with pepper powder along with bread croutons.
After adding white sauce do not heat the soup for long time.
Always heat any soup in reduced flame to avoid milk curdling.
