Quick Potato Soup


I did think of having sub themes for this mega marathon. But I am not close to being as ready for it as I wanted to be. To add to it, my freight is delayed and hence I am separated from my blender which is pretty essential for soups. So my sub theme is basically ‘Soups that need no/minimal use of blender’ till I lay my hands on my dearest blender.

So, no surprise, that a potato soup is in order. This one, like all my favorite dishes, has minimal ingredients, a quick cook time and can be mashed easily. So here goes –

Serves 3

Recipe adapted from here


Potatoes, large                      3

Onion, large                           1

Water                                     1/2 cup

Milk                                       2 cups

Coriander leaves                 2-3 tbsp

Salt & Pepper



  •  Peel and chop the potatoes into small pieces. Chop the onions finely
  • Add both to a saucepan and pour enough water so as to almost cover them
  • Cover and cook till the potatoes are completely cooked
  • Mash them with a potato masher but leave a few chunks
  • Add enough milk to get the soup to your desired consistency
  • Season with salt and pepper
  • Garnish with coriander leaves
  • Enjoy!


This is my third post for the September Mega Marathon under the theme – Soups.
