Tomato Soup

Its so cold here in Seattle today. After a day out for shopping, was tired and hungry too. Guess what stroked my mind ???  Ye Hot Hot soup.
Soups are always a favorite for those keeping a tab on their diet.
Half Small Onion chopped
2 Green Chilis
4 Tomatoes [ or 3 tablespoon Tomato paste ]
1 teaspoon dried Basil leaves, If u have fresh basil drop by 3 leaves [I substituted with Oregano leaves]
2 teaspoon Butter
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
3 cloves gralic finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon coarinder finely chopped
1 tablespoon brown sugar [ You can use white sugar too]
1/4 cup cream [ I did not add this, But this adds lots of flavour to the soup ]
Cumin seeds [Optional] 
salt to taste
In a pan add oil and 1 teaspoon butter
Add cumin seeds,garlic cloves, onions and green chili's. Saute for 5 mins and then add tomatoes and coarinder leaves. Close the lid and cook it on slow flame till tomatoes become soft. If using paste add 2 cups of water and cook it for 10 minutes
Let the mixture cool down, On cooling blend it
In the same pan used; add reminaing butter and add soup and cook it for 10 mins. Add basil/oregano , pepper, sugar and salt at this point
Add water if the consitency is very thick. 
Add cream stir and serve HOT
Easy Healthy and Tasty!!!
