I thought making some light soup for our upset stomach and cough. And here is the yummy Indian spiced Carrot soup.
Indian Spiced Carrot Soup
Take a sauce pan and heat the oil in it. Add cumin seeds and fry for 30 seconds. Now add chopped ginger & garlic and fry for few seconds, do not over fry them.
Now add chopped onion and green chili, fry till the onion becomes soft. Add chopped carrots, some salt & sugar to taste. Add 1 cup of water to the sauce pan and cover it to cook the carrots till the carrots become tender.
Turn off the heat and let the carrot cool down completely.
Now take the cooked carrots with some boiled water into a grinder and grind it to make a smooth carrot puree. Take another sauce pan, heat it.
Add 1 teaspoon butter to the pan, cook till the butter melts. Add the flour and stirr and mix with the butter. Make sure there is no lumps in the flour.
Now add the carrot puree to the pan and mix with the flour butter mixture. Add 1cup of milk to the pan, and let the mixture boil for 5-10 mintues.
Stirr continously to prevent the soup buring at the bottom. Turn off the heat and serve the hot soup with some fresh cream on the top.
If you want you may add tomatoes also with the carrots.
