Tomato & Rice Soup err...stew!

A few years back, this soup was served at our work cafeteria and after that, I never came across the soup, ever anywhere else.Thought will give it a try and so here it is-It is very simple and believe me, it is really tasty:)

About 4-6 servings

29oz can of Tomato Sauce
6-8 cups water
1 Med Onion, chopped
1 garlic clove,crushed
1 Med Potato, peeled, cubed, boiled
1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tbsp fresh coriander
1/3 cup cream (Optional)
Salt & Pepper to taste
3/4 cup Basmati Rice or any long grain rice

  • Saute onion and garlic until tender in olive oil
  • Add potatoes and cook for 5 minutes
  • Stir in the seasoning and coriander
  • Add sauce and water/broth and bring it to a boil.
  • Add rice slowly and cook till tender and soft but not mushy.
  • Add coriander, cream, salt and pepper.
  • Cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Serve it hot with parmesan cheese
Note:If you don't like the tomato taste to dominate, you can add more cream to mellow the tangy flavor.
