SWEET CORN SOUP

On a cold ,rainy day nothings more comforting than slurping on a bowl of hot soup.A bowl of any soup is the best thing to have when one wants a light meal for dinner.My all time favorite is tomato soup and sweet corn soup.When my mom was here she prepared sweet corn soup for us.It was one of the best.
This soup is my post on day 5 of RM.



INGREDIENTS

Baby corn - 3-4 pieces,thinly sliced
carrot, beans -1 cup each, cut into small pieces
cabbage - 1 cup, shredded
mushroom - 1 cup , sliced
cream of corn - 1 can
green peas - 1/2 cup
water/vegetable stock - 6 cups
garlic - 1 tbsp,chopped
flour - 1 tbsp

cream - 1 tbsp
butter - 1 tbsp ,divided into 3 parts
salt and pepper

METHOD

In a large flat bottom pot,melt 1st part of the butter , fry half of the mushroom ,cool and grind it to a paste.Keep aside.In the same pot melt the 2nd part of the butter and fry all the vegetables slightly and keep aside. In the same pot melt the remaining butter, add garlic and fry for sometime.Then add the flour .Cook the flour till its raw taste disappears.Pour water/vegetable stock slowly and bring to boil. Add the grinded mushroom paste and the fried vegetables. Pour in a can of cream of corn.Season it with salt and pepper(I add a lot of pepper since it goes really well with corn and tastes fantastic).Cover and let it simmer for 5 mins.Serve hot in a bowl with a swirl of cream on top.
