CREAM OF BROCOLLI SOUP



HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL

INGREDIENTS:

Brocolli - 1 - medium-sized
Butter - 1 tablespoon
Corn flour - 1 tablespoon
Salt - as per taste
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp.
Milk - 1/4 cup
Fresh cream - 1 tablespoon
Onion - 1 (optional)
Garlic - 2 pods (optional)

METHOD:

Wash and cut brocolli into florets. In a pressure pan, melt 1 tsp. of butter and saut
é  the brocolli pieces for a minute. (If using onion and garlic add it at this stage. I have not used it). Reserve a few florets for topping. Add a cup of water or vegetable stock and pressure cook for 2 whistles. When cool, grind it to a fine paste.

In the remaining butter, saut
e  corn flour ( do not discolour) add milk and stir without any lumps. Add in the brocolli paste, pepper powder, and salt. Mix well.  Add some more water or vegetable stock to get the desired consistency.  Allow it to boil. Switch off the stove, add fresh cream and mix well. Garnish with the crunchy, sautéed brocolli. Serve hot.
