from, "Still Life with Menu." Even after doubling spices, I found it bland. A mini chopper does not grind the spices adequately. It will at least cut the sesame seeds with a minute's effort or longer, to a point where there is the feel of oil. cvt

Recipe Ingredients for Indian-Spiced Tomato & Coconut Soup **

14 g (1 Tbs.) butter
48 g (1/3 cup) sesame seeds
1/8 tsp. ground cumin or 1/2 tsp. whole cumin seeds
1/8 tsp. ground mustard or 1/2 tsp. whole mustard seeds
1/4 tsp. ground coriander (2013) or 3/4 tsp. whole coriander seeds
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
12 ounces light coconut milk (97228)
1/2 tsp. salt (up to 1 tsp.)
2 pounds tomatoes (3-4 large)

Recipe Directions for Indian-Spiced Tomato & Coconut Soup **

  1. Coarsely grind sesame (and other seeds if using) in a blender.

  2. Heat butter in a medium soup pot and add ground sesame seeds, cumin, mustard, and coriander along with ground cinnamon. Stir until golden and fragrant (about 8 min). Remove from heat and add the salt.

  3. Grate the tomatoes on the large holes of a grater, discarding skins, and add tomato puree to soup pot.

  4. Add coconut milk to pot. Heat to boiling, reduce heat, and simmer gently for 15-20 min. Serve topped with yogurt and mint. Serves 4

  5. Substitution for coconut milk: Using dried coconut, lightly toast it over medium heat until golden, being careful not to burn. Place in a heat-proof bowl and pour 2 cups boiling water over it. Let steep for 15 min. Strain through a sieve into the soup pot, pressing out all the liquid (discard the coconut).
