Corn and Capsicum Soup

dsc_0391

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 has curry powder as its main flavour. I did not have it in my kitchen and figured that it shares a lot of ingredients with our very own garam masala and so the substitution was made with delicious results. I have used only green capsicum but you could use a combination of green and red. Usually I wouldn’t mind if the vegetable stock is substituted with water but I would not recommend that here because the garam masala and stock blend well to flavour the capsicum and corn. So do take time to make or buy the stock.
