Tomato soup is very common soup, particularly in India. There are very less people in this world who do not like tomato. That is why it is popular and it is very easy to cook & delicious. You may have tried different types of tomato soup but very few you can remember right now as not each soup was tasty. How many you can remember right now? Is creamy tomato soup in that list?
I personally like this creamy tomato soup as compare to normal tomato soup. I still remember that I have tasted tomato soup first time in train and after that whenever I traveled I saw they only offered tomato not any thing else. Though I do not know the exact reason behind it but I guess it is because of being most preferred soup in India. As in India we use tomato in most of the recipes, so very less people will have objection if tomato soup will be served in train. What is your opinion?
Now coming to this creamy tomato soup, it creamy and thick. As fresh cream is used here, it looks less reddish. Potatoes are used to make it thick and heavy & tasty. So if you have a bowl of soup with soup stick then you do not need to have anything else in that evening. Ginger, garlic, onion & red chilies are added in this soup. You are free to add extra water if you want to control thickness of soup. But I personally prefer thick creamy tomato soup.
