Carrot Soup

The whole of last week, we have been under the weather.My daughter had cold, cough and fever and we were quite scared where that would turn into flu of some sort but luckily, she just had cold and fever.(Touch Wood!).Just when I thought, she is getting better, V started to sneeze and even before you could do anything about it he is down with some cold, sore throat...Ahh!!
Between the three of us, I guess I am healthy with a minor knee pain which I injured during Summer by hitting a shopping cart and it got worse while I was jogging.So that is not ready to go away!But I will take that as long as I don't go down with some flu like symptoms.So our week was very eventful.To end such a week, a comforting soup was just what we needed-simple and easy to make.

Among a few of my favorite events (in the blogging world), Monthly Mingle and MLLA are very close to my heart.I have been busy lately to participate.But I guess, this month I have two dishes that I can send to both my favorite events!

Source:All over the internet!

2 lbs of Carrots, peeled and cut into small cubes
1 small onion,chopped
1 medium potato, peeled and cubed
3 tbsps butter
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
1 1/2 tsp Curry powder
1 tbsp Cumin-Coriander powder
Pinch of turmeric
2 oz Orange Juice, optional
6 cups water/broth/stock
Sour Cream or Greek Yogurt or Whole milk Yogurt like Stonyfield

  • Melt butter in a wide and heavy bottomed pan
  • Saute Onions and cook till translucent
  • Add potatoes and fry them for a few minutes
  • Add the spices-Ginger garlic paste, Curry Powder, Cumin-Coriander powder, turmeric.
  • Add the carrots and stir in the orange juice
  • Pour 6 cups of water and let it boil for about 25-30 minutes until the carrots are cooked well
  • Puree it in a blender.(I am not sure if blending hot ingredients would ruin the blender, so I let it cool a bit. But if you know that there is no correlation, go ahead and blend it)
  • Do it in batches
  • Pour it back in the pan and let the puree simmer for a few min.
  • Serve hot/warm based on your preferences but don't forget to add the sour cream or thick yogurt.

Have fun
