Carrot Soup

Carrot Soup

So let's come to the carrot soup, I used:

Carrots - 2 large (chopped finely)
Onion - 1/2 small (chopped)
Garlic - 2-3 pods (chopped)
Olive Oil - 1tps (You can use butter or any other oil too)
Bay Leaf - 1
Sambar powder - 1/2 tps
Pepper and Salt - to taste
Water - 2-3 cups


1. Chopped the onion and carrot finely.
2. In a pan heat oil, add the bay leaf, add garlic, onion and saute them.
3. Now add the chopped carrot and saute for 5mins.
4. Add sambar powder mix well and cook for 2 more mins ( Laavanya has added water now but I have forgotten to do that !! )
5. When the carrot comes to room temp, make puree of them adding 2-3 cups of water.
6. I cooked the puree again for 5-6 mins, adding salt and pepper to taste.

After tasting the soup I thought it's too thick and it's better to filter them. So, after boiling the soup I filter it !! (If you think there is a need to filter the soup then you can do it before boiling it).

I did not add any corn flour as I didn't find that neccsary. Soup was simple, yummy and filling.
