Cream of Cabbage Soup


Cabbage soup1
Decoration: Used the paper flowers that I made to match the soup :)

Purple is my favorite color and soup is my favorite dish.. Both together is a super good feast to my eyes and tongue! :)

I am sure anyone would get fascinated with this purple soup. The color is so attractive and it taste like heaven :)

Method:

Peel and chop onion into fine pieces. Heat butter in a pressure pan and fry crushed garlic and then add the chopped onion to it and fry for a while in reduced flame taking care not to discolor the onions. Add chopped cabbage and fry for few more minutes. Now pour in just enough water to cover the pieces and pressure cook till one whistle in reduced flame.

Cool the contents and reserve one Tbl spn of cooked cabbage separately. Blend the rest in a mixie and strain well. Now dilute it with the milk and some water if needed. Add the cooked cabbage pieces, salt and pepper powder and heat it for a while.

Serve it hot adding some cheese on top. :) Enjoy making :)

Superb Nits... but to be frank I never like these soups. They all appear to me like rice water...

Your's might be a special taste isn't it? :)

I dont have them from hotels if alone or with friends but do have it when in Business parties and meets. There it is a sign of high class business bonanza.

I have seen people using knife and fork eating pizza's. But when with friends I eat them using hands. I am used to these foods from my childhood but to be frank I would like to be simple, no pretends.

Ayyo this has nothing to do with a soup topic but as the topic of a high lass- low class clash came this araised.

My friends Biga like soups and I will provide this article to him.

He is a fan of soups and starters and always orders them when he is in the hotels.


He is a full time semi beaurocrat.

It seems to be an interesting recipe. I will try it. Just one question - what if I use refined oil to saute instead of butter?

Nithya said...

Thanks all.

@Deepa - You can definitely use refined oil instead of butter. But I can assure you of extra taste when you use butter ;)
