Tomato Soup

Tomato Soup is one of the most common and favorite soups of all. There are many versions and combinations of this soup but for this recipe I am sharing a healthier version using all fresh ingredients. This soup is low-fat and healthy yet creamy and thick.  How? with the addition of secret ingredient - potato. Yes!! add a boiled potato to your soup to get a thick and creamy soup. I have used some tomato paste to get a rich and deep soup color but that's completely optional and you can only stick to the fresh ingredients.

Red Velvet Cupcakes


Red Velvet Cupcakes are primarily vanilla cupcakes kissed with a hint of cocoa and colored red to match its name. Traditionally these cupcakes got their red color from beet juice but now a days mostly its the red food color that does the trick. Cream Cheese frosting is the perfect classic frosting combination with these cupcakes. Red Velvet cupcakes perfectly match the valentines day or even Christmas theme due to the red white color combination.

Bread Upma

Bread Upma is one of my favorite breakfast and snack dish since childhood days. Its basically bread cooked in onion tomato masala along and spices. My Grandmom & mom mostly made this dish when we had some stale bread. Although this recipe is a great way to use stale bread, fresh bread will taste equally good.
