Today I felt like something different, maybe not a heavy soup or a light one but one that had to be just right. I did not want something bland, or something that was too heavy and too tasty, but I wanted something that would give my taste buds a tiny bit of sensation. So while digging through the fridge I found a Brinjal. Now a Brinjal could be curried and when cooked it would be quite mushy yet tasty as well. So out came the Brinjal and a Tomato and I also found nice nicely diced onions, and I found a left over cabbage. So this was the beginning of my soup.
So here goes, Water Sautéing Onions. I will describe each photo. First you boil a little water in a pot, not too much, not to little about ½ cup or so. Leave the water to boil and then toss in the onions.
So now we can begin with our soup
Curried Vegetable Soup
Round Brinjal 1 – to be cut into large cubes
Tomato 1 medium – to be roughly chopped
Cabbage Leaves 2 or 3 – randomly torn
Curry Powder ½ tsp or a little more if you wish
Chicken Powder ½ tsp
Salt to taste
- Once you have sautéed the onions as explained below, add in the brinjals and tomatoes. Let it simmer till the Brinjal is soft and almost not visible.
- Season and add in the curry and chicken powder. Add in the Cabbage Leaves.
- Once Cabbage leaves are soft, remove from heat and serve.
I found this soup to be really nice and tasty and my brother who has been turning his nose up to my soups of late actually ate most of it. So I only had half a bowl of soup today and nothing much else. Shocking right?
