Cold ,Cold, Cold ..... Ya ,Winter has started here. Yesterday it was very cloudy so was feeling very cold .So I wanted to drink something hot to stay warm ,and a hot pot of soup is a delicious, and hearty way to help keep the cold at bay. Nothing warms us as a steaming bowl of soup when cold winter weather frosts our toes and noses. Its very boring to have the same soups again and again. So I tried a healthy carrot soup which I bookmarked so many days before.

Carrots are an excellent source of antioxidant compounds, and the richest vegetable source of the pro-vitamin A carotenes.Carrots are considered to be the ‘best vegetable’ for balanced diet.

This spicy version of Carrot soup is guaranteed to clear your sinuses on a cold winters day :-)


Ingredients:-

Carrots – 5 Medium
Butter – 1 tbsp
Bay leaf -1
Onion -1 medium
Ginger – 1 tbsp finely chopped
Curry Powder - 1 tsp
Black Pepper Powder- 1/2 tsp
Water – 3 cups
Milk – ¼ cup
Sugar – 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
fresh parsley, finely chopped for garnish


Method:-

Melt 1 tablespoons unsalted butter in a pressure cooker over medium heat. Add1 bay leaf,
1 medium onion, chopped and fry till soft. Add in 5 medium carrots chopped into bite size pieces, 1 tbsp ginger, chopped finely ,cook for 2 minutes, till coated with the butter. Add 3 cups water , 1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper, 1 teaspoon curry powder .Bring to a boil over high heat. Put on the Pressure cooker lid and let it whistle 3 times. Take off the heat and let it cool. When cooled, open the pressure cooker, puree the mixture in a blender till smooth. If you have one of those stick blenders, more power to you. Pour the soup back into the cooker and stir in 1/4 cup milk, 1 tbsp sugar,Salt to taste.
Reheat over medium heat until piping hot. If soup is too thick, add water or milk until it reaches your desired consistency. Adjust Salt and pepper to taste. Ladle into bowls and top with a finely chopped parsley.Serve immediately.
