Golden Carrot Soup~

IMG_4282I am a huge huge fan of Soups. PERIOD. Be it any kind of soup from clear soup to thick soup to creamy soups – I love everything. Everytime we go out for dinner, my heart goes towards the variety of soups the restaurant serves. Sometimes I actually rate a restaurant based on their soup quality. Having great love for soups, I used to buy sachets of Knorr readymade soup. While it would have nothing but a teeny-tiny veg pieces and a couple of sweet corn, I would relish it just for the feel of soup. One day I thought enough was enough, I should take soup matters into my hands and thats when my soup saga started. During my week’s stay in Chennai, I amazed everyone at home with a different kind of soup every evening. Some of them would feature here as well. For now, here is the Golden Carrot Soup Recipe.

Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • Carrots – 3 (medium sized)
  • Onion – 1 (medium)
  • Olive Oil – 1 tsp
  • Crushed Black Pepper – 1/2 tsp
  • Salt – to taste
  • Water – as req
  • Coriander – Optional

Procedure:

  1. Peel the carrot skin and roughly chop the carrots into chunks.
  2. Take a thick bottomed bowl and add olive oil.
  3. Add finely chopped onions and saute until half cooked.
  4. Add the carrot chunks and saute for a minute. Add enough water making water the carrots are well-immersed.
  5. Let them cook for 8-9mins on medium flame.
  6. Once the carrots are soft (by now the water should be evaporated). Take the mixture into a blender and let it cool. I would leave a few onion pieces in the bowl, which would give an awesome texture to the soup.
  7. Grind the mixture into a smooth paste, add some water to make it to soup consistency and pour it back into the thick bottomed vessel.
  8. Add salt and pepper powder, bring the soup to boil and serve hot with chopped coriander on top.
  9. I would sometimes skip pepper powder and coriander to relish the taste of carrots. Both these are optional.
