1 beetroot peeled and finely chopped
2 onions finely chopped
Salt to taste
Italian seasoning (few)
Mint leaves few
Pepper powder to taste
Butter – 1 tbsp
Heat butter add finely chopped onions and fry them till slightly burnt… (that doesn’t mean u got to burn them… just roast them bit more than regular).
Now add tomatoes and sauté till its mashed.
Add beetroot and ½ cuppa water and cook the beetroot…
Once done add mint leaves, Italian seasoning and fry for 2 more minutes.
Allow it to cool down and then grind them all together and make it into a smooth paste.
Remove it in a bottom pan and add the paste and water to liquefy the soup….
