Sweet Corn Soup

Iam sure all the readers must be wondering why this particular recipe is for both "Kids and Weight Conscious People" .Well this soup does not contain even a drop of oil but while serving to children please garnish with butter or fresh cream which makes it even more creamy

  • Chopped coriander - little for garnishing
  • Butter / Fresh Cream - as required (only for Kids)
Step -1- Saute

  • Once done take it out and cool it

Step - 2 - Boiling Sweet Corn
  • Remove corn kernels.Trust me it is not at all hard
  • Put corn kernels in the same pan and pour milk till it gets immersed
  • Close the lid and cook on a medium flame for 12- 15 minutes by stiring it thrice in between 
  • Simmer the flame.Open the lid and stir continuously for 3 minutes.Make sure it is not burnt
  • Switch off the stove once the corn is 3/4th cooked.Cool it
Step 3- Making Soup
  • Now grind onions, garlic, boiled sweet corn (along with milk), pepper in a mixer
  • Transfer it to the same vessel and add salt.Boil for 5 minutes
  • Garnish with coriander and switch off the stove

Relish hot soup.Add butter / cream before serving it to kids
