You think of soup mostly when you are going through a cold-recovery cycle.Especially soups which are quick and easy to prepare with available ingredients. I saw this golden broth from Tarla Dalal's Soups and Salads, remember I talked about it in my last post? It is a simple soup with carrots,onions and potatoes topped with sauteed spinach.Hearty to the core.
Carrots: peeled & chopped: 2 cups
Onions: chopped: 1 cup
Potatoes: 1/2 cup
Butter: 1 tsp
Onion: finely chopped: 1/4 cup
Spinach: chopped :1/4 cup +/-
Milk: 1/4 cup warm
Salt & Pepper: as per taste
Peel and chop carrots,onions and potatoes into small peices.Add in 5 cups of water and pressure cook for 2-3 whistles. Let it cool and then blend to a get an orange coloured soup.
Heat butter in a pan,add in fine chopped onion and spinach,saute for a few minutes till the raw smell goes.Add in the soup,boil for a few minutes.You can keep aside few spoons of the sauteed mix for garnishing. Add in milk (preferably low fat,but I used regular). Add salt & pepper.Serve hot topped with more spinach and onion along with your choice of accompaniments.
A simple hearty soup. It is more orangeish in colour than seen in the pic. It is wholesome and rich in Vitamin B.The soup is not spicy as such and the heat/spice is obtained from pepper only.Enjoy the warm soup.
