Tomato Soup | Thakkali Soup | Soup Recipe

Tomato Soup, a quick and easy to make soup with tomatoes. Though we don't have the habit of having soup at our home regularly, once in a while, i prepare this tomato soup along with some sandwich or panini.Yep, that is a combination inspired from panera bread combo menu. As temperature is dropping here now, these combination is our absolute favorite to have it as dinner or as lunch on those cool days. 
Here in the soup recipe, i haven't use any cream at all and make it as very lighter as per our liking. But if you like rich tomato soup, instead of maida mixture, you can use heavy cream, that will make it as more like restaurant soup.
