Apple Tomato Soup

Ingredients :
Apple - 1
Ripe Tomato - 1 if very sour  ( usually the smaller types with lot of seeds taste very sour) and 2 if ripe but moderately sour.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Coriander if possible and if you are trying soups to reduce your sugar levels.

Here is how you make it :

  1. Cut the apple into two and remove the seeds.
  2. Cut the tomatoes into two.
  3. Pressure-cook the cut apple and tomatoes with 3/4th cup of water.. It should take you five minutes at the most.
  4. Remove the cooked pieces from the pan and grind in your mixer. 
  5. Add the paste back into the cooker. 
  6. Now measure the contents with a cup. Chances are you would have three cups of the soup.
  7. Add one cup of water, salt and pepper to the mixture.
  8. Bring the mixture to boil.
  9. Add chopped coriander leaves.

Important : Serve this soup warm or cold.Chances are that you wont be able to enjoy the taste of the sweet and sourness blended in this soup if you serve this steaming hot.

The cooked apple renders the soupy consistency that is normally given by corn flour. This way you avoid adding carbohydrates to your intake.

You can choose to grind Green Chilly and coriander leaves along with the cooked apple and tomatoes if you like.
