Although soups are not often eaten in India, tomato soup bucks the trend and is very popular. This is excellent on a cold winter day.

Yummy! I'm used to Italian versions of tomato soup; with basil and oregano, so this was a really different experience. I liked the coriander and pepper flavors- they really made the tomato sing. I can't help thinking though, this would be even more amazing with a grilled cheese sandwich :D Made for ZWT8.
