Cream of carrot soup

This heavenly cream of carrot soup is must try. It is an exotic soup made of everyday ingredients which I am sure all of us have in our kitchen.

If you are just about to have lunch/dinner, you can quickly add this yummy and nutritive soup to your menu! 

Ingredients (Serves two)

1 carrot
2 garlic cloves
1 onion
1 1/2 cups chicken broth/ vegetable broth along with something for thickening [Some options discussed below]
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup chopped coriander
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tsp butter 

The broth.. that is going to give your soup the soupy texture. There are several options for you based on what you have at the time of cooking.

Option 1 >> Make 1 1/2 cups of stock using readily available chicken/vegetable stock cubes (I used Maggi) + 2 tsp corn flour diluted in 1/4 cup water at the time of cooking

Option 2 >> No stock cubes? Dont worry, you must be having cabbage? Make fine puree of chopped cabbage (about 2 cups) + 1 garlic clove and bring to boil by adding some water. To this add 2 tsp corn flour diluted in 1/4 cup water at the time of cooking

Option 3 >> Okk no chicken/veg stock, no cabbage and no corn flour too!! I hope you have a potato then.. you can add one medium size peeled potato along with rest of the ingredients.

Make a fine puree of carrot, garlic, onion and potato (if you are using one).
In a pressure cooker, add some butter.
Pour the puree in it, add the broth and milk along with salt and pepper. Mix well and pressure cook for 10 minutes on low flame.

Yummy creamy and nutritive cream of carrot soup is ready! Sprinkle coriander at the time of serving. And yes, server hot!!
