Sweet Corn Soup

This Soup is our recent favourite. The Margazhi climate is so chill. Soup becomes must for Lunch in this Climate. This is one easiest soup, i prepare and the bread-winner relishes this soup with some breads:)

Sweet Corn Soup

What i do is, put the corn cob in microwave and microwave it on very high for about 5 minutes. I cool the cob, shred the corns - its a tricky job, I slowly slice the corns with knife. the corns beautifully shreds. I put the corns in my mixer, add some water and grind into thick puree. Then i heat a pan, pour the corn puree onto the pan. I add some water, to make it for soup consistency. In a small cup of water, i add a tbsp of corn flour and mix it without any lumps and add it to the pan of corn puree. I then add salt, pepper to taste and some finely chopped Green Spring Onions over the soup. now in recipe format.

Sweet Corn Soup with Garlic Bread

oh..Garlic Bread i forgot You. Its easy. Get 2 slices of bread. toast it with some butter. apply some Garlic Cheese on one side of the bread and top it with finely sliced Garlic. sprinkle some oregano on top. If you have Microwave with Grill. Pre-heat the oven for 5 mins. Grill the Bread, with cheese top facing the gril. Gril it for 3 to 4 mins.

If you don't have microwave, then do it on Dosa Tava, just close the tava with lid. slow the flame. its just enough if the bread gets heated and the cheese to raises a bit. Enjoy Garlic Cheese Bread with warm soup.
