Low cal microwave tomato soup

Soups form a major part of my dinner everyday.So I am always looking for options to cook them in a jiffy, without much hastle, usually oil or fat free.Heres a recipe I learnt from Chithra, with my own slight modification

Makes one bowl
2 tomatoes
1 small onion
1/4 tsp sambar masala
1/4 tsp pepper powder
salt to taste

In a microwave safe bowl, cut tomato into large cubes.Do the same for onion.
Add sambar powder and 3 tbps water.Cover the lid
Microwave high for 3 minutes
Give a standing time of 5 minutes. Then the cooked contents in a mixie and puree it
Add 1/2 cup water to liquidise it and transfer to MW bowl
Add salt, mix and sprinkle pepper.
Microwave for 1 minute.
Remove, serve
