I have been trying to get the taste of this soup from my favourite restaurant in Singapore. After a lot of experimentation, I have come up with a version I love.
Tomatoes 4 large
Potato 1 large
Spring onions 5
Fresh basil leaves 10 sprigs
Paprika powder 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Pepper powder to taste
Butter as needed
Steam the potato, tomatoes and spring onions in a pressure cooker.
Skin the tomatoes.
Add the steamed vegetables to a blender and blend well.
Heat in a heavy bottomed pan. Add the basil leaves, paprika powder and salt. Adjust the water content and boil for five minutes.
Serve with a blob of butter, salt and pepper.
