4 tomatoes, apply oil and roast over fire, peel the skin, crush lightly
1 onion, sliced

1 clove
1/2″ cinnamon stick
1/4 tsp black pepper pwd or red chili flakes
very small pinch nutmeg pwd
1 tbsp fresh coriander OR fresh mint leaves OR dried herbs of your choice

1 Heat oil and butter (optional) in a vessel, add the cinnamon, clove, onions and garlic and saute for 3 mts. Cool and blend to a paste.
2 Add the crushed tomato to the onion paste and saute for a mt. Add three cups of water, coriander leaves or dried herbs, nutmeg pwd, black pepper pwd and jaggery and let it simmer on low-medium heat for 25-30 mts or till it thickens slightly.
3Keep stirring once in a while while the soup is simmering. [You can blend the cooled tomato soup and simmer for 2 mts for a smooth soup]. I like the soup chunky hence, I have not blended the tomatoes.
