Pour about 1 to 2 cups of water and close the pressure pan.
Heat on high, and after one whistle, turn the heat off.
Once the pressure is released completely, open the pan and let cool slightly.
Remove the skin from the tomatoes, try and remove the cloves and ginger piece along with the green chili.
Drain the vegetables, place them in a blender jar and make a fine puree.
Place in a saucepan, add water according to how thick or thin you want the soup to be. Add the water in which the vegetables were cooked too.
Add salt, sugar, the seasoning cube and stir.
Bring to a boil. Once it comes to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes.
In a small saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of butter/ghee/oil and once it is hot, add the chili powder and pepper powder, turn the heat off and add this seasoning into the soup.
. Mix well and serve hot garnished with chopped green onions or coriander leaves/cilantro and a blob of butter (optional).
Serve hot with buttered toasted bread.
You can avoid the carrot and make it just a tomato-onion soup.If you do not have seasoning cube, you can omit it; it will taste just as good!!Addition of garlic along with the ginger will give it another flavor; sometimes I use only garlic instead of ginger or sometimes use both.
