Pea Soup



I love soups in winter and keep experiment with different soups. I love my soups to be pureed and very smooth while my hubby loves then with the vegetables still floating, OK that's how I call it the floating objects soup. So sometimes I leave half of it for him and puree the rest for myself, that way we both are happy. But this soup had to be pureed. I love this soup, it is a heavy soup and we could not have much, half a bowl compared to the other soups will be ok. We had it with some macaroni salad for dinner.

Ingredients
2 cups vegetable stock or water. (you can use veg bouillons if you like)
1/2 cup peas, frozen or fresh
1/2 onion, chopped,
1/2 inch ginger grated
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
1 tsp kasturi methi
red chili flakes to taste
salt to taste.

Method

  1. Heat 1 tsp oil in a pan and add the onions. Cook till translucent.
  2. Add the ginger and water and bring to a boil.
  3. Add the peas and simmer for 10 minutes or till the peas are cooked.
  4. Add the cardamom and turn of the heat.
  5. Puree this mixture.
  6. Put back on heat, add more water if required or boil to desired consistency.
  7. Add chili flakes, salt and kasturi methi.
  8. Serve hot or cold.
