If's there one comfort food that unites people of different cultures, it's soup. There's nothing like curling up with a bowl of hot soup as the monsoon rains pour down. This recipe is perfect for a cozy weeknight dinner or for when you're not in a mood to cook an elaborate meal. It's also nourishing and easy to digest for days when you need to want to eat light. Dress it up or down with veggies or other things you have at hand.
What you'll need
- A cup of chopped yellow pumpkin
- A big onion chopped into 4 pieces
- A handful of garlic cloves
- Salt and pepper
- Some curry leaves and coriander for garnishing.
How to make it
Boil the pumpkin, onion and garlic in a stone / terracotta vessel (or any vessel you have available) along with salt and pepper. Once boiled, cool and grind them together in a mixer. To add a green colour, at the time of blending, add a handful of fresh coriander and curry leave. Have fun adding whatever moves you. Top with coriander and serve hot or warm.
A tip: Ensure the proportion of pumpkin is always higher.
