Coriander Tomato and Potato Soup


Similar to every other blogger out there, I am protective over my blog and try to keep it save, away from spammers. Yet I am wondering how on earth they can still inundate my space with all sorts of comments. I thought the word verification is good enough but seem like there are other ways which the spammers are very good at. 


Since of late, I have been clearing countless spam mails and I don't know what I should do. I hope there will be no major consequences like hijacking my post or password. I sincerely hope it will stop soon. Nevertheless, to all genuine bloggers, your comments and feedback are sincerely appreciated and a big thank you for that.  Similarly, a big thank you to my facebook fans/followers - those who have tried my recipes and took the trouble to let me know. 

Here's another one for all of you - a soup, perfect for the rainy season, nothing brain cracking except to simmer the ingredients and enjoy the flavours: tad bit of sourness, enhanced with spices and garnished with spring onion and coriander leaves. 

Ingredients
2-3 medium size tomatoes - chopped
2 potatoes - cubed
5 shallots - chopped
3/4 litre - vegetable stock
1-2 sticks cinnamon 
3-4 cloves
1 tsp cumin powder
1 ts; fennel powder
1 1/2 tsp coriander powder
2-3 sprigs spring onions - sliced
2-3 sprigs coriander leaves - sliced
1 1/2 tbsp butter
Pepper and salt for taste

Method
Heat butter and sauté shallots, cinnamon and cloves.
Add cumin, fennel and coriander powder. 
Stir, add tomatoes, potatoes and pour in vegetable stock.
Let the soup simmer till potatoes are cooked.
Season with salt and pepper.
Another stir and off the heat.
Garnish with spring onions and coriander leaves before serving.

Anyways .. :(.. coming to your soup.. sounds awesome, I would love to prepare this when I'm alone and feel just a soup bowl with this kind of soup would be comforting. Lovely flavors this soup may have with added Indian spices.. :)

  15. Nice looking soup, I have the same problem with spam but I decided to clean them up on a daily basis. Trying to block it gives difficulties for real commentators to add something to the article.

  34. Nava, when I moved to my own blog I was surprised to see the amount of spam comments I received the very first day. Then I set up Akismet web service to block spam. It is a very effective and free. The veggie soup looks good and I can see all the spices that you have used to make it flavorful.
