Carrot Soup

Carrot Soup

Super simple, basic carrot soup the way I like it. There are numerous versions of carrot soup. I enjoy carrot soup when combined with thick coconut milk. This orange shaded warm pot of goodness is light, nourishing and comforting for a rain filled wet day.

    Hei Sailu;

    Thanks a lot for the posting. I was thinking about it for sometime but no idea how to do it. Thanks again. Hope to see more soup recipes, easier to prepare and serve for my toddler.
    I would like to know whether can I substitute paneer with cottage cheese, because paneer is not available at my place. Thanks.
    Take care.

    • Sailu

      Your welcome, Gangka. Yes, you can cottage cheese.

    Lovely soup.Tasted just like a hotel made soup.
    I skipped using coconut milk neither did I use skimmed milk.
    Tastes good just like that. Next time will reduce the qty of cloves.
    That made the soup somewhat spicy. Thanks.

  • Deepthi

    Just made it! Absolutely delicious Sailu ๐Ÿ™‚ I also made Cheesy Corn Fingers today ( ur recipe) It was delicious as well. Thanku so much

    I would like to try this soup but have a few queries –

    1) can I use heavy whipping cream instead of coconut milk or skimmed milk?
    2) what is ginger – green chilly paste? do you just grind ginger and green chilly together with some little water to make some paste? or is there any special procedure? sorry, rookie question.

    But I want this to come out well to my taste so I can have it daily as doc had advised me to take this

    Thanks much

    • Sailu

      Sorry I missed your query. Use top of milk or malai instead of heavy whipping cream. A tablespoon of malai will do. Grind 2 green chilis and a small piece of ginger to a smooth paste. You can make green chili-ginger paste and store in fridge for a week to ten days.
