INGREDIENTS:

  • 4-5 medium sized Tomatoes
  • 1-2 medium sized carrots
  • Sea Salt to Taste
  • 1/2 Tablespoon  black pepper or as per taste.

Wash the Tomatoes and take out the stem part with help of knife. Peel carrots and chop them in medium size. I have used carrots – in order to combat the acidity of the tomatoes so there is no need to add sugar and making it more healthy. Boil them  for 10 minutes with 2 cup water in a pan.

Now with help of a fork, try to remove the skin of Tomatoes. It will be easily done so no worries. Carrots would have become tender too.

Now the fun part, Use your hand blender to puree in the same pan. Now add some Sea salt and black pepper to taste. Add water to adjust to the consistency , if it’s thick. I didn’t add any sugar as my carrots had done their work. Bring it to a nice boil. Ready to be served.
