SWEET CORN & SPRING ONION SOUP

SWEET CORN & SPRING ONION SOUP

With the weather being somewhat inclement in Bengaluru, many have taken to bed with bouts of cough, cold, fever and the like. We too had our share of cough and cold. During this time I made several soups to supplement our diet as they are both filling and healthy.

There are different types of soup. Some are rich and thick while others are light and clear. Elsewhere in this blog, you will find recipes for Spinach Soup, Beetroot Soup, Mushroom Soup, and Lemon & Coriander Soup

A few days ago I tried out another soup, adapted from Sweet Corn & Spring Onion Soup by MasterChef Tarlaji Dalal. It turned out to be excellent and we enjoyed this thick and rich soup. The spring onions proved to be the perfect foil for the sweet corn.

I hope you will enjoy this soup as much as we did.
