De Light Full

Pumpkin Soup

Summer in Bangalore is here in all it’s glory and the fruits galore everywhere are a proof of that.  It’s a lovely feeling to eat light meals and enjoy the fruits and vegetables of the season.  Light meals are in and they keep you full and on the go.  De Light Full in short.

The Recipe:

¼ kg orange pumpkin,  washed, skinned  and cut into chunks; 1 large onion, skinned and quartered;  3 large garlic flakes; ½ inch piece of ginger;  4 cups chicken stock or two soup cubes;  coriander for garnishing; salt and pepper to taste ; 1 small onion minced and fried in 1tsp oil for seasoning; a dash of milk per cup.

Pressure  cook the pumpkin, onion, garlic and ginger for 10 minutes in 1 cup water.  Cool and puree.  Transfer to a large sauce pan and add the stock, beating well with a whisk till smooth.  Boil till thick and creamy,  adjust  seasoning and serve hot with rusks or garlic bread  in individual bowls with a dash of milk and garnished with coriander leaves.
