Spicy Tomato and Coconut Soup

Sharing is caring!

This soup is so creamy that you could also use this as a sauce.   Pour some over a large piece of chicken and you suddenly go from starter to main meal!  Grating the tomatoes is a lot easier than boiling and peeling them.  And there is something wonderfully childlike in making a mess!  

You could always used tin tomatoes, but I prefer them fresh for this dish.  There is no traditional soup stock either, but this soup is just fine with the coconut cream for a base.


2 cups grated tomatoes

1 tin coconut cream

1/2 tspn black mustard seeds

2 dry red chillis, finely chopped

1 large onion, peeled and chopped
1 inch ginger, peeled and chopped
2 large garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
1/2 tspn dried fenugreek
1 tspn ground tumeric
1 tspn ground cumin
2 tblspn tomato puree
1 tblspn coconut oil

8 fresh curry leaves

salt and pepper
  • Heat the coconut oil in a large saucepan and add the black mustard seeds.  When they start to pop add the curry leaves and red chilli.   Cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add the onions, ginger and garlic and cook for 2 – 3 minutes.
  • Add the tumeric, fenugreek and cumin and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes and tomato puree and cook for 5 minutes on a low simmer.
  • Add the coconut cream, season to taste and cook for about 15 minutes.
  • Puree the soup in a blender (or by using a hand blender).
  • Slurp, eat and enjoy!
