Everyone loves tomato soup. To me it is full of memories — of my mum attending to me when I was sick, or camping and cooking a one-pot warmer, or coming home from school and settling down to watch The Saint or The Man From U.N.C.L.E. with my brothers.

This is a simple recipe packed with flavour. Kashmiri chilli powder isn’t hot, but adds a vibrant colour to this soup; omit the milk and it can also be vegan. I would serve it with chapatti.
