Serve with bread stick's or with spiced corn flake's.

* The corn flakes in the images are just plain corn flake's. check the spiced one's here.

It just took 15 mins of time in total and the production cost of this soup could be less than Rs.25, I don't know why the restaurant's charge double the amount.

Day's roll on so fast. I have Lot's of work coming by, in two day's. I wanted to post and mark my presence here before that. Today My Son's school re-opened after Christmas Holiday's, and life turns organised for me now again. Here in Chennai, Street Side Soup Stall's are becoming Famous. Once I tried Vegetable soup in a stall nearby and loved these spiced cornflakes topping's on it. It gave a nice crunch to the hot soup along. so when i prepared vegetable soup today, i definitely needed these spiced cornflakes.

Spiced Corn Flakes


Cornflakes - 1 cup
Ghee - 1/2 tsp
Curry Leaves - 4
Chilli Powder - 1/4 tsp
Peanuts - 1 tsp
Salt - a pinch


Heat the Ghee in a Pan, add peanuts and roast it, till it turns into golden colour. slow the flame. Now add curry leaves and roast it. add chilli powder and salt and mix well.

Now toss the cornflakes with spices from the pan. toss it well.

Store it in an air-tight container.

You can add this to soup's. also you can have these spiced cornflakes with sambhar rice or rasam rice.
