Tomato Egg Drop Soup

One fine day, I look upon and find nothing but tomatoes, what do i do, where does my mind go, to have that lip smacking delicious dish which my stomach juices linger on, to have more. There i go, I found it. The all so normal Tomato Egg Drop Soup. Its raining outside, and the thunders are calling out hard to prepare something that would tantalize my taste buds. Soups would be the best option.

Loads of tomato and the wonderful vegetable stock does the trick.



Ingredients

4 cups vegetable stock
1 cup diced ripe tomatoes
2 or 3 garlic cloves
1/4 cup cilantro leaves, chopped
2  tbsps Cornflour 
1 tbsp Tomato Sauce
1/2 tsp Oregano (Optional)
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
tbsp  vinegar
1 egg white, lightly beaten
Salt to taste
Directions 
Peel garlic cloves and chop them into tiny bits. Finely chop the onion and tomatoes. Take egg and separate the egg white and yolk. Beat the egg white and keep it aside. Mix cornflour in 1/2 cup of water.
Take a deep bottomed pan. Add oil to the pan and saute garlic for 30 seconds. Add onions and saute them till translucent.  Add the diced tomatoes and let it simmer for 3 minutes. Now add tomato sauce, oregano, salt to taste and white pepper. Cook it for 30 seconds and then add the vegetable stock. Let it boil for 5 to 7 minutes. 
Add the cornflour+water mixture slowly and mix it till it reaches the required consistency.
Now, very slowly, add the beaten egg and stir it continuously in clockwise direction to create thin streams or thready mixture. Add vinegar and coriander leaves and let it simmer for 1 minute. 
Serve it piping hot with bread toast or croutons.
