This great combination of Tomato & Biscuit makes for a delicious soup full of flavour. I added some salty whole wheat biscuits and this gave a very smooth, creamy texture to the soup. I usually make Tomato Soup with some oats thrown in to give a body to it. But this time I thought why not with Biscuits. Hence this awesome one-pot meal. Have it as a light dinner with some bread sticks or croutons.
- 3 medium tomatoes, roughly chopped
- 1/2 cup salty biscuits / crackers, crumbled
- 1 tbsp. oil
- 3-4 garlic, chopped
- 1/2 tsp. roasted cumin powder
- 1/2 tsp. pepper powder or to taste
- 1 tsp. sambar powder
- 1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
- salt to taste
- juice of 1/2 lime or to taste
- 1 tsp. coriander leaves, chopped

Pressure cook the tomatoes in 3 1/2 cups water for 2-3 whistles. When cool, blend and then strain. keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan and saute the garlic till they changes colour. Add the cumin powder, pepper powder, sambar powder and turmeric powder mixed with 2 tbsp. water.
Saute till the oil separates. Add the strained tomato juice, salt and the crumbled biscuits. Simmer for 2-3 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Blend till smooth. Heat through and add the lime juice. Serve, garnished with coriander leaves and a sprinkle of red chili flakes. Enjoy with some bread sticks or croutons for a light meal anytime of the day.
