Indian people do not care about soup. We are happy to have a cup of hot tea along with a few fried stuff like pakoda, namkeen etc. But when we go to a restaurant, we often try various soups before main course items are served. Many people also tasted soup for the first time when they are travelling with Indian railways. Many people enjoyed warm and tasty tomato soup along with soup sticks for the first time in their life. Is this not true? So whenever it comes to soup, tomato soup comes to our mind first. It is not just tasty but also very easy to make and most soup lovers will enjoy this. But did you try restaurant-style tomato soup from tomato paste at home? It is very easy and you can do a lot of experiments with that.
7 awesome tomato soup recipes from tomato paste
|Tomato onion soup (Recipe): This is one of my favourites. The colour and taste of this are really wonderful. I have tried this several times during the winter season. It helps me to avoid eating fried stuff for an evening snack. You can try it regularly because all the ingredients to make this are very common and you can find those in almost every Indian kitchen’s inventory. That is why I keep it at the top of the list.
|Roasted tomato pumpkin soup (Recipe): Many people want to have a thick soup that will help to fill an empty stomach. So it will help to fulfil the purpose. But it has a smoky flavour that somebody may enjoy and somebody may not. That smoky flavour comes from the roasted tomato. It is another excellent item on this list that you can enjoy throughout the year.
|Hot and sour tomato soup (Recipe): Indian people enjoy hot & sour tastes. So this is a perfect item for those who enjoy such taste. You just need tomato paste to make it within a jiffy. Did you ever think why tomato and tamatar sound almost similar? In fact, in many Indian languages, it is also called tomato. Why do we use the same word for the vegetable in an Indian language and well as in English? I have shared the reason for that in my earlier post, you can go and check that post if you are interested to know.
|Creamy tomato soup (Recipe): This is the perfect one to have during the winter season. It contains extra calories because of fresh cream. As fresh cream is added, so it does not look reddish. The colour of this item is pale, rather it looks bright yellow. I love it to have with a soup stick. As you know those sticks are not common items in any Indian kitchen. So I use to make extra roasted bread slices. I just cut those to give those similar shapes. You can try it with butter too. It is really yummy.
|Hot tomato soup from momos chutney (Recipe): If you like hot & spicy soup, hot & spicy means really something super hot & spicy, then it should be on the top of your list. You do not need tomato paste if you have such chutney in your kitchen. I eat a lot of veg momos during the winter season. So I often make enough momos chutney throughout the season. I maintain a stock of that momos chutney in our refrigerator.
|Roasted tomato soup (Recipe): It is being almost a year I did not try roasted tomato soup. Last winter, I had this. I tried almost every other type of soup. But I do not know why I missed it. When I started writing this post and searching different versions of tomato soup recipes from tomato paste. Then I discover it again. Actually, since last year, I forgot to try various awesome dishes that I loved too. It is all because of that pandemic situation. I cooked less but grow more and more vegetables in my kitchen garden.
|Tomato cheezy soup (Recipe): It is another awesome item. It should not be at bottom of this list. But I had to put it at the bottom because I do not try it regularly. I mean whenever I bought cheese to make this but eventually I consumed all cheese by making a cheese sandwich, pizza and various other awesome dishes.
