Vegetable soup

Update (04/07/4014): I just came across the Soups with SS event being hosted by Sonal and Shruti through the delicious soupe au pistou post of Angie. I wanted to share the only soup recipe that I have posted on my blog to-date. It is a simple vegetable soup.

Today’s recipe is my mother’s recipe for her favourite soup which she makes almost on a weekly basis at home.

Vegetable soup:

Time taken: 40 mins

Serves 4

Vegetable soupIngredients:

  • Mysore dhal – ½ cup
  • Carrot – ½ cup, chopped
  • Cabbage – ½ cup, shredded
  • Potato – 1, small and chopped
  • Beans –  ¼ cup, chopped
  • Leeks – ¼ cup, chopped
  • Celery – piece (optional)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Garlic flakes – a big pinch
  • Vegetable cube – 1 (optional)
  • Lime juice – 1 tbsp (optional)
  • Water – 4 cups


  1. Clean and chop the vegetables and place them in a soup pot/ pan.
  2. Add 4 cups of water and cook the soup for about 20 mins.
  3. Remove from stove and let the soup cool a little.
  4. Transfer half the soup to a blender and blend. Return the blended soup to the soup pot.
  5. Add salt and pepper, to taste, and garlic flakes to the soup pot. Mix well. A vegetable cube can also be added, if you like. Cook for few mins and warm up the soup.
  6. Just before serving, add some optional lime juice.
