Kashmiri Vegetable Soup


Helloo everyone,
The rain. Rain and none more, When it rains, I also get lazy (Corn Soup, Chinese Tofu Soup, Lentil Vegetable Soup & Creamy Mushroom Soup). You know how rainy weather is right? You just feel like dropping everything aside and cuddling in bed doing nothing (Thai Tomato Soup, Japanese Lotus Root Soup & Korean Radish Soup). Of course, career must go on. Wish we can work escape. We can actually because October is the month you should start thinking about clearing your annual leave. Otherwise, trust me, some companies are merciless. Come beginning of another new year or the cut of point, your leave will be conveniently forfeited. Tell me about such companies? Thus, when rainy season begins, maybe its one of the best times for you to take leave if you have no purpose of keeping your leave and like I have already told you, sit back, rest back and enjoy your time at home over a serving of such inviting, almost luxurious, smooth to all our senses and mildly spicy Kashmir Vegetable Soup (Lamb Rogan Josh). Kashmir and their soups? Oh-wonderful (Old Cucumber Soup). Of course, as usual, we need spices and a  tinge of Kashmiri chilli powder for that heat which definitely our body can relate to cold weather (Vegan Pumpkin Soup) and for the vegetables, potato (Vegan Potato Curry & Aloo Gobi) is a fondness like in most, in fact in all countries throughout the world or whatever local produce vegetables will do (Rice Pilaf, Vegetable Kadhi, Hyderabadi Vegetable Biryani & Andra Sambar).



Ingredients
2-3 medium size tomatoes - cubed 
2 potatoes - cubed
5 shallots - chopped
3/4 litre - vegetable stock
1-2 sticks cinnamon 
3-4 cloves
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp fennel powder
1 1/2 tsp coriander powder
Kashmiri chilli powder (or any other) - a pinch
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 powder, fennel powder, chilli powder and coriander powder. 
Stir, add tomatoes, potatoes and pour in vegetable stock.
Let soup simmer till potatoes are cooked.
Season with salt and pepper.
Another stir and off the heat.
Garnish with coriander leaves before serving.

  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.
