Simple and delicious, nothing says comfort more than a bowl of home-made tomato soup. And on the plus side, it is a very very healthy dish to include in one's meals!

Ingredients
5-6
medium tomatoes, the ripest/plumpest you can find
1
carrot, peeled and grated
1
onion, chopped
1 tbsp
butter
1 tbsp
oil
1/4 tsp
garlic paste
salt/pepper to taste
2 tsp
sugar
1/2 tsp
oregano
1 tbsp
chopped coriander leaves
1
chilli
2 cups
chicken broth
2 tbsp
cream OR milk
Instructions 

Chop the tomatoes with their skins and set aside.

Melt the butter with the oil, then add the onions and fry until aromatic. Add the garlic paste and black pepper powder. Stir together then add the grated carrot and chopped tomatoes, plus the red chili. Cook together until the tomatoes soften and excess moisture has evaporated. Add the broth, salt and coriander leaves.

Reduce the heat, cover the pot and let the soup simmer for about 10 minutes. Give it a stir occasionally.

Add the oregano and stir it in. Turn off the heat, then blend the mixture until smooth. You can use a hand blender or let the soup cool and use a regular jug blender.

Once pureed, return the soup back into the pot and add the sugar. Simmer and adjust consistency to your preference. Finally add the cream or milk and adjust salt/pepper. Give it a final stir and taste. Turn off the heat and serve hot!

Chicken soup, either boil chicken with salt, pepper, ginger and garlic then drain the soup to use in the recipe OR you can dissolve a chicken cube in warm water and use.

Asalaam'alaykum, you mention "1 chilli" in the ingredients and in the instructions it says " plus the red chilli" so i'm confused, do you mean 1 red chilli, or 1 tsp chilli powder? FYI I've made this a few times now and add 1 green chilli (not chopped) and a pinch of turmeric powder, it's absolutely yum. JazakiAllah khayr for the recipe :) x

Actually I use a red chilli (not the powder) just to make sure the soup remains vividly red lol, sorry about the confusion. But any chilli would do, and thanks for the lovely feedback!

Jazakallah

Salaam. I have made this soup few times and all the time its a hit. Only one things I'm disappointed with the result is that, I never get a a vivid red color as yours in the pic. I use tin tomatoes and i think they give better color than fresh tomatoes. Please advice how can I get red color as yours? Jazakallah

W/Salaam, the colour could be more from the lighting than anything else. You could add a bit of tomato paste/puree or even a little bit of food colouring to enhance the colour, but as long as the taste is good then the colour is not as important. :)
