Carrot Soup

After a very long gap, I am again hooked to blogging. This is a diet recipe. But adding cream will enhance the taste of the soup.

Serves 3
Carrot 3-4 Medium peeled and diced
Onion 1 chopped into two
Garlic 6 or 7 pods
Black Pepper 1/2 table spoon
Tomato 1 (No need to chop)
Salt as required
Dried Basil 1/2 tea spoon

Put all the above ingredients except salt and basil in the pressure cooker with enough water and let it cook for 5 whistles. Once cooled, remove the skin of the tomato and whirl the cooked ingredients in the blender. Add enough salt, 2 cups of water and bring it to boil. Season with basil and serve!

* I prefer whole black pepper over the powder as it gives good flavour and heat. Otherwise you can use pepper powder
* It would be easy to remove the skin of the tomato when we cook it whole in the cooker. 
* I have added potato once before for the thick starchy texture. It was also very tasty. If you care for the potato you can add one peeled and diced in the cooker along with other ingredients.
