Carrot Tomato Spring Onion Soup

Soup and Mutter pulao

Today is the fourth day, Blr has not seen the sun. The light showers don't seem to stop. The wet clothes are beginning to dominate the space at home.

I fantasize of walking in the soundless rain with him in a single umbrella. My steps slow trying to catch his strides, arm in his waist. He looking down at me, that side-ways glance that I love. Then suddenly Chimi jumps on me and shakes me out of my day dream. I tell her come lets make some grub. A soup to warm my heart.


4 spring onions
2 carrots
1 tomato
1 green chili
handful of cilantro
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon on oil
salt and sugar to taste

I go to the fridge pull out the vegetable wash and cut them and put everything into the pressure cooker, the onion greens, carrots, tomato. Allow three whistles. Cool before opening.

In a big soup pot add the oil. Saute the spring onion bulbs. Cover and cook with salt. Add a little water to avoid charring.

Open the cooker and puree the ingredients with cilantro and green chili. Add them to the cooking onion bulbs. Add the cumin powder. Adjust the salt and sugar. Simmer for 5 mins.

I poured it into a steel tumbler and sipped slowly in my new rocking chair.

Clicked on a sunny day so you see the warmth oozing.

For my dear friends: I promise I'll get back on to mails soon.
