Wanted to have something hot, spicy but healthy. Was wondering what to do and just was rummaging through the fridge and kitchen and took some Tomatoes, Onions and Carrots and made this Tomato Shorba in a jiffy and had it hot with 2 slices of toasted bread. 

Ingredients:
Tomatoes - 4 or 5 depending upon the size
Onion - 1 big
Carrot - 1 medium sized
Cinnamon - 1 inch piece
Garlic Pods - 6 nos
Black Pepper - To taste
Salt - To taste
Corn Flour - 1 tbsp
Coriander Leaves - 1/2 cup
Cream - 2 tbsp(optional, I didnot have it so used Amul Butter)

Method:
Cut carrots into cubes, tomatoes into 4 pieces and onion into strips. In a vessel add tomatoes, onion, carrot, cinnamon sticks, garlic pods, salt, 1/4 cup of coriander leaves and 1 cup of water and pressure cook it. Grind all the ingredients along with one more cup of water. Seive the mixture thoroughly. 

In a flat bottom pan add the seived mixture. Simmer the flame. Add 2 tbsp of water to the cornflour and make it a paste and add it to the soup and bring it to boil. Remove from flame and add pepper powder and cream (or Amul Butter). Add the remaining coriander leaves and serve hot.

This is a healthy recipe for pregnant woman. Young mothers too can have this as an energizing drink in the evening.
