Green Peas Soup

I got the idea of making green peas soup after reading the entries for our first day of the blogging marathon. PJ has posted a very interesting recipe of green peas soup and I wanted to try it immediately. I was also running short of 2 recipes for this week's sub-theme and the green peas soup fitted perfectly for my theme this week. I haven't made much changes to the recipe that PJ has posted.



Since this is not the season of fresh peas, I used frozen peas to make this soup. Peas is one of my favourite vegegies and I keep adding it to anything I make, upma, some rices. I add them even to sambar and dal fries sometimes. I loved this soup and everyone at home appreciated it. It gave a warm feeling to have this soup on a rainy evening.



Ingredients:

1 tbsp Butter
1 Onion chopped
1 Potato chopped
1 Carrot chopped
1 clove garlic optional
1 cup green peas
1/4 cup Milk
Salt to Taste
black pepper freshly ground,to taste


Method:

  • Blanch the frozen peas. Put them in hot water for about 10-15 minutes.
  • I microwaved the chopped carrot, potato, onions and garlic for about 10 minutes.
  • Grind the peas along with the microwaved vegetables to a very smooth paste.
  • Add water as needed while grinding. We can use the hot water which we used to soak the peas.
  • Transfer the ground paste to a pan; add the milk, salt, pepper and add water and adjust the consistency of the soup.
  • Cook until you see froth coming in from the edges of the pan.


 Serve hot!!
