Potato and Corn Chowder

Honestly, I cannot believe that I completed the Mega Marathon in time. It was a challenging month with the moving in to the new house and settling down and blogging daily. Of course, in my mother’s words -“You could simply have done it next month.” But it is hard to explain as to why doing my…

Moroccon Style Chickpea Soup

When I started the soup theme this month, my plan was to make more lentil, bean and grain soup so that I could replace my meals with them and spend lesser time in the kitchen. But I saw so many varieties of soups with different veggie combinations that I sidelined the grains and lentils and…

Clear Onion Soup

I am not a huge fan of clear soups. Therefore the logical conclusion is that the husband is. He does not understand why soups need to be creamy, rich purees as against light soups with lots of flavour and I fail to comprehend why I need such clear soups when water will do the trick….

Manchow Soup

Manchow soup is yet another staple item on restaurant menu cards along with sweet corn as tomato soups. Whenever my family and I ate out, my dad always went for sweet corn while my brother chose tomato and my mother always had manchow soup. She is a spicy food lover chained to blandness because dad…

Corn and Capsicum Soup

I believe this is the longest I have gone in my blog without a recipe including cheese. And how could we let that happen? Though this one doesn’t have cheese as a main ingredient, it does lend a lovely flavour to the soup and though it is optional, I would recommend it wholeheartedly. This soup…

Carrot Soup

Carrot soup has been on my list since the beginning of this mega marathon but I kept postponing it. I would buy carrots with the intention to make the soup but I would end up using it for upma or pulao and postpone it yet again. If nothing else, my daughter would eat up the carrots…

Lemon Coriander Soup

Some soups are delightfully simple and flavoursome. Lemon coriander is one such. It is made with ingredients which are usually available at all times at home. It makes a wonderful start to a meal by teasing your taste buds but at the same time not killing your appetite. Serves 3 Recipe adapted from here WHAT…

Ajo Blanco

There are many types of cooks. Some are slow, other fast. Some follow the recipe to the T while others go with the flavour. Some measure diligently while others go with their estimate. I always wanted to be the latter but my estimates are so off the actual number that it is not funny. I…

Oats Soup

There are days when you run around with a million things to do with no time for a coffee or a meal and then there are days when things miraculously work out and you finish hours worth of work in minutes and actually have time to sit back and relax. When you chance upon such…

Spinach Soup

I am actually surprised that I could do over 15 soups before I came to spinach. Spinach is an integral part of many mixed veg soups which I have been postponing because I never went to the store in time to get fresh spinach. In the evenings, they would look so worn out and sad,…
