Carrot Soup with macaroni and an award with tag....

                                                                        
Now a days, it's quite windy out here in Bangalore. And on cold evening nothing can beat a steaming hot soup. Since we are able to enjoy red carrots only during this winter season,so I'm using this in every possible dish. My son doesn't like to have thick soups so I made it lighter by adding tomatoes.


Serves: 4, Preparation time: 15-20 minutes


Ingredients:
3-4 Red carrots, cut into big pieces 
2 big Tomatoes (ripe), chopped
1 small Onion, chopped
1/2 inch piece of Ginger, minced
3-4 Garlic pods, chopped
1 Green chilly
4-5 Baby corns, cut into pieces
Salt to taste
Black pepper to taste
3-4 cup Water


For Macaroni:
1 cup macaroni, boil as per the instructions and do add little salt and half tsp oil in it. Keep aside


Method:
In a pressure cooker add tomatoes, carrot, garlic, ginger, green chilli, baby corns and water. Put salt as per your requirement. Close the lid and pressure cook for 10-12 minutes. Once the steam subsides, open the lid and let the mixture cool down. Take out the baby corns and keep aside. Blend this liquid in a blender to a smooth paste. After that strain through a sieve. Transfer this soup to a saucepan and reheat. Add sugar, boiled macaroni and baby corns to the mixture. Adjust salt and black pepper powder. Garnish with chopped coriander. 
Enjoy this hot soup of bowl with garlic bread or bread sticks in the evening !!
