Ingredients
  

Instructions
 

  • Using Saute setting of Instant Pot, add oil to the inner pot. When the oil is hot, add onions and let it cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add celery & carrots to the pot and cook for another 1-2 minutes till they turn a bit soft.
  • Add diced tomatoes and mix, and also add Bay Leaf & Cinnamon to the pot.
  • Close lid and with the vent in the sealing position, pressure cook for 8 minutes. When the timer beeps, NPR (No Pressure Release) for 10 minutes and later Quick Release.
  • When steam is released and the valve goes down, open the lid. Remove Cinnamon & Bay leaf from the pot and add dried Basil & Oregano to the pot.
  • Grind it smoothly using Immersion Blender or any other Grinder you prefer. Next, add Milk/Broth/Stock to the pot and keep stirring in between.
    (Note: You Can use 2 Cups of Cream or 2 Cups of Milk or 2 Cups of Broth. Or can also mix them together in any ratio and add to the pot. I usually add 1 ½ Cups of milk with ½ Cup of Broth and 1-2 tablespoon Cream in the soup).
  • Next, add Honey, Garam Masala Powder, Salt & Pepper and keep stirring until it comes to boil.
  • Add Parmesan cheese and let it cook till the cheese melts and add fresh Basil Leaves before serving.

Notes

You Can use 2 Cups of Cream or 2 Cups of Milk or 2 Cups of Broth. Or can also mix them together in any ratio and add to the pot. I usually add 1 ½ Cups of milk with ½ Cup of Broth and 1-2 tablespoon Cream in the soup.
For little sweetness in the soup, I add Honey. It gives a nice tone and also balances the flavor.
Vegan:
To make the recipes Vegan, add Coconut Milk instead of milk/cream and Parmesan Cheese and also don't add Honey.
Adding fresh basil leaves gives a nice freshness and adds flavor to the Tomato Soup.
 
I have made this recipe using my Instant Pot Duo60 7-in-1 Multi-Cooker.
