- Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat; stir in onions and bay leaves, and cook about 5 minutes until the onions begin to soften. Add flour, ginger-garlic paste, garam masala, turmeric, and Indian chili powder. Cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute.
- Pour the water into the pan, and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom with a wooden spoon. Pour in the tomato puree and thin with additional water to desired consistency. Add sugar and salt; cook until sugar is dissolved and soup is hot, about 5 minutes.
- Remove bay leaves and serve with cream if desired.
- Cook's Note
- Substitute 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper for 1 tablespoon of Indian chili powder.
- Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

This is quite something (I've modded with a mix of coconut milk/heavy cream). Also fresh cilantro that I needed to use up. I plan to make a batch of this and add cream before microwaving. Nee...
