Tomatoes, correct tomatoes are critical for any tomato recipe. Choose long, red and juicy tomatoes, also known as salad tomatoes, which are not very tangy and give a nice red colour. Further the colour has been enhanced by adding beetroot. It is a silent ingredient, just infuses its colour and that’s it! Carrot also has been added which not only enhances the colour of the soup but also gives it some sweetness, natural sweetness. Soups at restaurants are slightly sweet, so a teaspoon of sugar has been added, however, it is absolutely optional and totally depends on the tomatoes used. Garlic paste gives a good hint.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
