The one thing that we all crave or wish to have when we have a cold is some good hot soup! At the same time who feels like preparing one with all the blending, grinding and boiling procedure when we're sick.. this recipe comes in handy and my go to recipe for such times! 

It's one pot, no grinding required, mild and soothing! You can prepare this soup with veggies of your choice. 


Serves 4

Carrot  - 2
Beans - 10
Frozen peas - 1/4 cup
Onion - 1
Tomato - 2
Garlic - 3-4 cloves
Cumin - 1/4 tsp
Clove - 2
Freshly ground pepper - 2 tsp or more as per taste
Turmeric - 1 tsp
Water - 4 cups
Oil - 1 tsp


Chop the beans into 2 inch pieces and the carrots into thick pieces. Slice the onions and cut each tomato into 4 pieces. In a pressure cooker, add oil and saute the onion and the veggies. After a minute or two add the tomatoes with salt, turmeric and pepper. Saute for 2-3 minutes and add required water. Check for salt and add more salt and pepper if you require. Close the lid, after 3 whistles switch off  the heat and let the pressure release. In a small kadai, temper cumin and clove. Open the lid and add the tempering to the soup. Mix and serve hot. 

Isn't this simple?

Peas and mint soup is not only refreshing for this summer but also healthy. The minty flavour gives a wonderful taste to this soup and it tastes great even if you have it cold.

Peas -1 cup
Potato (chopped) -1
Mint leaves – about twenty leaves
Fresh cream- 3 tbsp OR Milk – ½ cup
Olive oil- 1 tsp
Salt & pepper

Heat a pan and add a tsp of olive oil and sauté the peas, potato and mint leaves for about 2-3 minutes. Add 2 cups of water to this and cook till the peas and potato gets soft. Drain the water, cool and grind this (the drained water can be used to grind this to a paste). Heat the pan, add this paste, salt and required water to get a soup consistency. Once it starts boiling, add the fresh cream/ milk and give it a stir. Add pepper and serve hot or cold.
