Since its started winter and raining here, we need something hot to taste along with rusk
or bread toast. So I thought of preparing soup for us. Usually I wont take much risk and work hard in making soups in my kitchen. I had a fear if I try, it wont come as creamy and tasty as in hotels or in ready to cook ones.
Once I have tried using cooked dal along with few vegetables, and added salt and pepper at the last, for my son when he was an year old. Alas nobody liked that one and all my work went in vain. Then i decided no more soup preparations at home. Then we enjoyed them at hotels or from ready cook one.
This method is my incidental finding when i was surfing for something else a month back. I tried and it came out really well and we all enjoyed the hot and sour in the cool evening.
chopped onion- 1/2 cup
All purpose flour or corn flour - 4 tsp
Milk - 4 cups
Bay leaf- 1/2
Sugar- 1 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1 1/2 tsp
Baking soda 1/2 tsp
Tomatoes, chopped (fresh or canned) - 3 cups
Melt the butter in a soup pot. Add the onion and cook over medium heat, stirring, until the onion is softened but not browned.
Sprinkle the flour over the butter mixture and continue to stir and cook for 1 to 2 minutes.
Slowly add the milk, bay leaf, sugar, and salt and continue to cook and stir until slightly thickened.
Stir the baking soda into the tomatoes.
Add the tomatoes to the milk, and bring just to a simmer.
Remove from the heat and put through a strainer.
Add pepper powder before serving.
Taste and correct seasonings.
U tooo enjoy the soup !!!!!!!!.........
