Methods to thicken tomato soup
Add corn flour : This is an old method to increase density of any soup. In case of increasing thickness of your tomato soup it works greatly. I do prefer to add corn flour whenever I want to adjust thickness of such tomato-soup. It helps to maintain consistency in this tomato-soup and brings nice shine in soup also. But do not add corn flour directly to the soup. Take half cup of warm water and add flour to that warm and mix properly then add it to soup. This process helps to maintain consistency.
Add boiled potatoes : This another easy method to increase thickness of any soup. Some people prefer it as it is always available in any household and easy to mix in any soup. You need to boil potatoes and mash it before adding to soup. Use hand blender to maintain consistency in your soup or just a manual masher if you are in hurry.
Add tomato residual : In most cases we remove tomato residual from soup but after extracting it’s juice still it contains some nutrition value. So better you can blend it further and make smooth puree and add it to soup and boil for another few minutes.
Use curd in tomato soup : If you prefer extra sour soup then you can thicken tomato soup by adding curd too. So take curd according to your need and blend properly in mixer grinder and add it to tomato-soup.
