Getting back to today’s recipe, let me warn you upfront that, coming days you will be seeing some soups taking the center place in my blog. I had always wondered why I never got around featuring Soups. which is missing from my Recipe Index! Yes, as I have said, I am not really a very keen soup person. But I decided I am going to address that and so you will be seeing handful of soups parading over here. I have few delicious soups tucked away and have tried many in those bygone days. But then thinking of making soups and then having it included in regular dinner, makes it such a lengthy process. So had always kept it for another day to come. Now that’s become the schedule!
Cabbage – 150 gms
Onions – 1 medium
Garlic – 3 – 4 medium sized pods
Salt to taste
Pepper as per taste
Oil – 1 tsp
Maida / All purpose flour – 1 tsp (opt)
Butter – 2 drops (opt)
Milk – 3 tbsp
Heat a pressure cooker with oil. Roast the chopped Onions till they are pink. If you are using All purpose flour, then roast once the onions are done.Then add the cabbage and roast for 2 mins.
Then add 1 cup of water and pressure cook the roasted vegetables. Pressure cook for 1 whistle and allow it to cool.
Once cooled, grind to a smooth paste. Sieve and run for a smooth paste. Add water as per consistency.
Cook without lid, add salt, pepper. Simmer and add milk. Cook for 1 min. Bring to boil or till you get the required thickness.
I have done without adding APF and butter, there is not much difference in taste. It was yummy this way too. I simply couldn’t believe it was a soup with Cabbage!
It was filling on its own, but I also had a serving toasted Brown bread for some!
