Tomatoes are  all time favorite vegetable/fruit, available through out the year. They are  very good source of Vitamin C and their intake (in raw form ) helps to cure digestion problems. 
So here is a Delicious soup made from Tomatoes with a slight touch of Cinnamon spice!!!
This preparation is for 3 persons:
6 large red tomatoes
3 cups water
1cinnamon stick(dalchinni)
1 teaspoon black pepper powder(kaali mirch)
1/2 teaspoon black salt(kaala namak)
salt according to taste
for garnishing:
butter(amount on ones choice)
Chopped coriander leaves
Wash the tomatoes properly in water and  boil them along with the cinnamon stick (till they get tender).
 Remove the cinnamon stick and ground tomatoes  into puree.
Sieve this puree using fine mesh sieve as we do not want remaining seeds or skin of tomato in our soup.
Tomato puree
Put this fine puree into a pan and add water. Let it boil for few minutes on low flame. Add all the seasonings and mix well.
Adjust the consistency of the soup as desired.
Finally garnish the soup with chopped coriander leaves and butter.
