Quite bored on a Saturday evening, decided to make a restaurant-style Tomato Soup for family, kids love it. Its almost a standard order in a restaurant when we decide to eat soup. With no option of getting out of home, lately keeping myself occupied with a lot of experiments in the kitchen.
Quickly browsed the recipe godown – Youtube! Spotted a Tomato Soup by Sanjeev Kapoor video, and decided to follow that step by step.
This definitely wasn’t the best of outcomes I’ve had, I’ll tell you why! This is how I started.
Now this is the step I would have avoided – adding cream! Either something was wrong in the way I added it, or it should have been done differently. Everything was okay with the Amul Cream I added, the expiry date, etc. I also switched off the stove and waited for a while. Perhaps I should have let it cool enough before adding it, it didn’t quite blend in seamlessly as I expected. In fact, there were small white dots all over on the top.
Finally, the taste was good and all that, but I wasn’t very pleased with the appearance of the minute white dots on the soup. At least, I tried! That was the only consolation. It did taste good, not doubt about that, but the attempt was not flawless.
There’s always another time. Hopefully will get better with each try.
