What you need is:

1 beetroot
5-6 Tomatoes
Curry leaves
Mustard Seeds
Cumin Seeds
Salt to taste
Chilly powder


Cook beetroot in cooker, peal it and blanch tomatoes . Blend beetroot and tomatoes together, you can sieve the puree if you want..(if health conscious let the fiber be there ) Add chilly powder and salt to it.
In a separate utensil ,for tempering, add little ghee to it add mustard seeds , cumin seeds, crushed garlic and ginger (garlic 4-5 pods, ginger 1/2inch) , curry leaves. After this has turned brown add asafoetida and then the tomatoes and beetroot puree.

Any soup can be thoroughly enjoyed in this season! At the window sipping the soup while seeing the rains. 
