tomato soup(updated with step by step pics)

this is from "332 recipes from sanjeev kapoor"- ebook...
dont go by the picture...the soup tastes far better than those served in restaurants...

Cut tomatoes,add a spoonful of moong dal( i add carrots, a piece of beetroot, a bay leaf and a star anise, pepper), and boil on the stove top till the moong dal splits( i keep in the pressure cooker for 2 whistles)... cool completely, blend in a mixer and strain...
Add butter to the pan, add onions(cut into small pieces), saute till pink in colour, add the strained liquid, let boil, add salt and pepper.....add a spoon of corn flour dissolved in water, stir well and add a cup of milk to the boiling soup....taste for salt and pepper and add more if necessary.....add a pinch of takes the soup to another level.....
i hav done this many times and it tastes really good with the butter fried onions...
