Black Bean Soup

Of late we have been having more soup than usual.My Dh was trying out all the canned soups,one spoon full was all I could take of it, soI decided to make an Indianised version of the black bean soup.Needless to say that the soup was awesome and a huge hit with my hubby.
Ingredients:
1 No Onion ( chopped)
5 Cloves garlic (chopped)
2 Nos Green chillies (slit and cut into half)
1 Medium sized Carrot (cubed)
2 Tsp Cumin powder
1 Tbsp Red chilly Powder
1 Can Black beans(drained & washed)
2 Nos Ripe Tomato
2 Tbsp olive oil
Salt to taste.
Coriander leaves for garnishing.
Method:
Heat oil in a pan, and add the onion and saute.
Chopp the tomato and grind it to a puree and set aside.
When the onion browns add the carrot,green chilly,garlic and saute for a minute.
Add the tomato puree, black beans,red chilly powder and cumin powder.
Add water as required.
Cover and cook for 5-7 minute or till the carrot and beans are tender.
When the bean is tender mash it a little with the back of a spoon.
serve hot.
Garnish with coriander leaves.
