But, what if I told you that you could take it up a notch and make it even better? Sounds delish, right? So, here we are, presenting to you the ‘ultimate comfort soup’ by our girl Vidhi Doshi a.k.a. @ramenhairedgirl—tomato coconut soup! Read on to find out how the usual tomato soup got a makeover that you defo don’t want to miss!
450 grams tomatoes
3/4 cup coconut milk
2 tsp olive oil
1/3 cup finely chopped onions
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tsp ginger paste
1 tsp cumin powder
Handfull rice noodles or soba noodles
1 tsp garam masala
1/4 cup coriander leaves
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Step 1: Make crisscross slits at the bottom of the tomatoes and put them in boiling water. Remove the tomatoes once their skin starts peeling off.
Step 2: Once the tomatoes are cooled enough to handle, peel off the skin and blend them to get a purée.
Step 3: Now, in a pan, heat some olive oil and add the finely chopped onions to it. Sauté this for about 2 minutes or till the onion is translucent.
Step 4: Then, add the finely chopped garlic and 1 tsp of ginger paste and sauté it for a minute more. I’ve added more ginger because I like the taste, but you can reduce it if you are not a fan of it.
Step 5: In the purée, add 1/2 a cup of water, cumin powder and mix it well. Stir and let this cook for about 5 minutes, till the purée is cooked well.
Step 6: Now add the garam masala, a handful of rice noodles (you can use soba noodles as well), coconut milk, salt and 1 more cup of water.
Step 7: Cook this on a low flame till the noodles are cooked. You can adjust the consistency of the soup accordingly.
Step 8: Once the noodles are cooked, switch off the flame, add the coriander and a squeeze of lemon juice and serve.
