CARROT SOUP

The menu for my son's birthday (Nov. 8th) is in the following photo. First, I was taking photos separately. My son gave the idea of taking everything in a plate and then to snap it separately. I took a photo of only the items in the plate and soup. The menu was: Soup, poori, two gravies, one dry curry with south indian meals and palada pradhaman.

I will start with the soup. The other items will be posted in the following days.


INGREDIENTS FOR THE SOUP:

Carrot -1/4 kg.
Pepper - 1/2 tsp.
Corn flour - 1 tsp.
Corn flakes - 2 tablespoons
Butter - 3 tsp.
Salt - as per taste
Water - 1 cup

METHOD:

Wash carrots well and peel the skin. Discard the head portion.

In a pressure pan, heat butter, fry the pepper and when it pops, add the carrots, salt and water and cook for 2 whistles. When cool, grind it in a mixie. Strain.

Mix corn flour in little water, pour into the carrot mixture and reheat it. If necessary, add some more water.

Garnish with some crushed corn flakes while serving.
