Winters at Kakkar household are synonymous with soups, for us, it is officially the soup season. Nothing warms your belly on a cold wintery Delhi Evening like homemade tomato soup does. And we cook almost all varieties of soup.
You can roast both the types of tomatoes, but I roasted just the baby tomatoes and allowed the plum tomatoes simmer just like that towards the end of cooking. This gives the soup a smoky flavour of roasted tomatoes but the flesh from plum tomatoes make it a creamy tomato soup as well. So for me, that works very well.
The best thing about home cooking is you can adapt any recipe to your own preferences, that’s the reason that we like to cook more at home however much busy our schedules are. If you plan your meals well you can always make time for cooking your meals at home.
Basil not only adds tonnes of flavours but is a great source of antioxidants too. It is anti-bacterial and provides lot of anti-inflammatory benefits too.
One tip of using basil, always try to use fresh basil and add it towards the end of cooking because oils in basil are volatile and sensitive to heat, so excessive cooking may cause loss of flavour of basil.
