2-3 medium tomatoes (doesn’t say – I would use Plum Tomatoes or 2 Plum and 3 Cherry)

3-4 garlic cloves (use fresh)

½tsp turmeric (Organic Powder)

1-2 tsp black pepper (Crushed peppercorn)

1 tsp cumin (Organic)

1 tbsp oil (Doesn’t say – I would use Extra Virgin Olive Oil)

(Doesn’t say – I would use a pinch of Sea Salt)

Take 3-4 cups of water in a heavy bottomed vessel. Roughly chop the tomatoes and add it to the water. Add some salt and turmeric and bring it to a boil. Let it simmer slowly.

While the tomatoes are simmering dry roast the black pepper and cumin till fragrant and once cool grind it into coarse powder in a pestle and mortar.

Peel the garlic and lightly crush it.

Heat oil in a pan, add the garlic and fry till golden. Add the pepper cumin powder and turn off the heat.

Add this to the simmering tomato mixture. Continue to boil for 2-3 minutes for all the spices to come together and tomatoes to fall apart. Drink hot!

My Changes:

I would add a few ingredients:

Orange Zest (Grate a fresh orange skin)

Basil Leaves (Fresh)

Don’t forget Cayenne or Chili Peppers!!

Don’t use water! Use 3-4 Cups of Green Tea instead! How’s that for a healthy power punch!!

If you happen to have a lemon handy (Juice of half a lemon fresh squeezed)

Always try to use fresh organic Ingredients when possible!
