This is a colorful, spicy, and hot soup that's perfect to warm yourself up during the winter months. You need some ripe tomatos, an onion, red capsicum, potatos, garlic, butter or olive oil, carrots, red chili powder, pepper powder, a cinnamon stick or some cinnamon powder, breadcrumbs, sugar, and salt.

Making this soup At-a-Glance:

Heat butter or olive oil in a deep-bottomed pan. Saute breadcrumbs till they become crispy and golden brown. Take them out and place on a plate. Keep aside.

In the same pan, add some more butter or olive oil. Saute chopped onions and garlic for a minute. Add chopped potato and carrots. Sprinkle salt on them. Stir-cook for 3 minutes. Throw in chopped red capsicum and tomatoes. Continue cooking the contents for a while. Add a glass of water. Cover the pan. Let the mix boil for 5-6 minutes or till veggies become soft and cooked. Turn off the flame. Keep it aside for cooling.

Pour the mix into a mixer grinder. Add a small cinnamon stick. Grind, adding water to get a smooth puree. Transfer it to a deep pan. Add 2 1/2 glasses of water. Add red chili powder, pepper powder, sugar, and salt. Mix well. Boil the mix for a minute. Tomato and sweet pepper soup is ready to serve. Pour it equally into four bowls. Garnish with fried breadcrumbs and kashmiri red chili powder. Enjoy sipping garlicky hot soup!

Some Important Information

1. Deep-fried breadcrumbs absorb lots of oil. Hence, shallow-fry them in just enough oil.

2. Kashmiri red chili powder is less hot. It has bright red attractive color. Hence, sprinkle a pinch for garnishing the soup.
