Fresh Corn Chowder

Sumptuous Bowl



The Saturday Spread -

Fresh Corn Chowder, Methi Bread Sticks, Griddle roasted potatoes and Cut fruits

I think I like her, the sensuous lady and she is not the skinny type ooohhhing and ahhhing with mouthfuls of baby food in the name of good food. That is Nigella.

Well this recipe is adapted from the Nigella Express. Adapted is when you don't have all ingredients at hand but you venture all out and end up doing something of your own.

Ingredients

1 cup corn kernels
1/4 Red onion (She used 2 scallions/spring onion)
2 tablespoon semolina
1 cup cubed mixed vegetable (carrot, beans, capsicum etc)
2 teaspoons oil.
salt to taste
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon vinegar
water as you like

Grind the corn, semolina and piece of onion together with little bit of water. Heat a saucepan, add oil. Stir fry the mixed vegetables. Remove and divide into 2 serving bowls. Now add the ground paste and stir fry for 5 mins. Then top up with water as you like. Chowders are thick soups so 2 cups is good. Add the salt, sugar and vinegar and bring to boil and it is nice and creamy. Put off heat and divide into the bowls with the veggies.

This Chowder has a texture so it has a repeat value with us and that's an exception
we make to thick soups.

Don't you think eating light on a Saturday afternoon is fun?

  2. So, does the semolina make the soup thicker? I've never tried that.
