Coriander Soup

July 10, 2007 at 10:25 am 6 comments

From incessant torrential downpour the Monsoon has shifted gear and we now have light showers. That must be sounding like a weather update to you J

The wet rainy weather is just perfect for a hot piping Coriander soup, which we had for dinner last night.


Photographing soups is quite challenging for me J and you can see that the result doesn’t make justice to the Coriander soup…It is much more tempting and tastier than it looks in the photo!__________________________________________________________                                                            Coriander Soup recipe

Serves : 4-5


½ cup carrots, peeled chopped and finely chopped

½ cup Cauliflower finely chopped

(Or veggies of your choice)

½ cup Paneer (cottage cheese) finely cubed

½ cup chopped coriander leaves (don’t discard the stems)

1 tsp Black/White pepper powder

2 tsp White Vinegar

Salt as per taste

    With a dash of lemon, it becomes the ever so popular lemon coriander soup. Great recipe 🙂
    @ Thanks Raaga, yes it tastes great with lime juice too.I have added vinegar to give it a ‘Chinese’ taste 🙂

    That soup in a white porcelain bowl would have looked better than the plain glass bowl. I have never seen paneer in soups. This is called indulgence 🙂
    @ 🙂 Thanks Suganya for that tip. In fact the first photo is with a white bowl.But for the 2nd one I had to give in to my toddlers wishes and with him around I hardly get 10 minutes to photograph my dishes!
