Tomato Soup

As I am writing this,it is slightly drizzling here,in Chennai.The perfect climate to enjoy a bowl of soup sitting by the window side or the balcony enjoying the weather.Yeah,am back in Chennai and sulking badly!!..the soup has pepped me up a bit though..:-/.Home-made tomato soup is something which I absolutely dote on.Mainly because,it is one thing which gives me an almost restaurant-like result and is a very simple recipe.

The way tomato prices are soaring,I don’t think I’ll be having this frequently though..;-).A perfect soup to have during a diet,without the croutons.In fact,I don’t know whether I like the soup better or the croutons in it..!!Here,I sliced bread into lengthy strips and shallow fried in a tawa without oil/butter.A bowl of soup,few slices of Tomato & Cucumber and shallow fried bread sticks comprised my dinner tonight..!!
