1 Big Garlic cloves
8-10 Black peppercorns

Salt to taste

1 tbsp Oil
2 tbsp Butter
1 Big Onion, chopped
⅓ cup Coriander stems
2 tbsp Sugar
6 Bread slices, cubes
1 tbsp Butter
½ tbsp Oil
½ tbsp Coriander leaves, chopped
For Baguette Croutons
3-4 Baguette, Slices
2 tbsp Butter
Method to prepare
In a pressure cooker add oil and chopped tomatoes and saute for a minute, then add red chilli powder, turmeric powder, ginger, garlic, black peppercorns, black cardamom seeds, salt, and water mix well. Close the lid and let the cooker release 2-3 whistles.
In another kadhai heat oil, butter and add onion saute until translucent and add the cooked tomato mixture and cook it for another 5-6 minutes.
Switch off the flame, add coriander stems, blend it into a fine puree with a hand blender, and then strain it with a soup strainer.
Pour it back in the kadhai and boil it for 15 minutes. Finally add sugar to balance the flavours, and give it a proper mix and switch off the flame.
Now serve it in a bowl and garnish with cream, prepared croutons, tomato slices, and coriander leaves. Your hot tomato soup is ready to serve.
Remove the sides of the bread and cut it into equal squares. Heat a pan and add butter and oil, ones heated add the cut bread squares and fry them until golden brown on both sides. For baguette simply cut the bread diagonally and follow the same process.
Remove in a bowl and add chopped coriander or parsley or chives, toss properly and use this to mop up your delicious soup.
