Spring onion Capsicum Noodle Soup


Spring onion capsicum noodle soup5
Decoration: Carved the capsicum top out to make a flower vase. Made an arrangement using spring onion tops with buds and a paper flower that I made.


I am back from my vacation and badly down with cold and cough. Yup it happens! When the climate, water and surroundings change drastically, its hard to maintain fitness. All you can do is get back and take rest for a week with a hot soup everyday. I am sure one can be back with josh as I am now. :):):)


Spring onion and capsicum are really healthy green vegetables and say what about noodles.. :) its universal favorite of all. So combined them all to make a very exciting soup.

Ingredients:


Diced capsicum - 1/4 cup
Finely chopped spring onion / onion - 1/4 cup
Chopped spring onion tops - 1/4 cup
Aji-n0-moto - a pinch(It enhances the taste. But health conscious ppl can avoid it. May be next time I too will avoid it :) )
Butter - 2 tsp
Cooked noodles - 1/2 cup
Milk - 1/2 cup
Corn flour - 1 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder - for taste
Grated cheese - for topping(optional)
Salt - for taste


Spring onion capsicum noodles soup

Method:

Heat the butter in a pressure pan and fry chopped spring onion and capsicum. Add aji-no-moto and little sugar to it and fry for few minutes. Add 3/4 th of the spring onion tops. Now sprinkle some corn flour and pour enough water or stock and pressure cook for one whistle. Let this cool for a while. Now puree the cooked mixture in mixie and strain well. (don't strain if you like your soup chunky)

Crush noodles to small pieces and cook till it becomes soft in just enough water and keep it aside.

Now add milk and cooked noodles along with enough salt to the pureed mixture and reheat in reduced flame.

Spring onion capsicum noodles soup is ready to eat.

Serve it hot topped with grated cheese, pepper and rest of the finely chopped spring onion tops. :)

Happy making. :)

Dear Nithya,Firstly get well soon dear. And it's the perfect combination and thing to have for a bad throat.
I personally love the taste of MSG..ajinomoto but use it on very very rare occassions and that too a pinch of it, understanding the health hazards!!!!
I have announced my first event, get well and take a peep into the announcement.

Parita said...

Wonderful presentation dear, i can see you in the spoon :)) Soup looks warm and healthy, wish u loads of wishes and hope you will be back with a bang! Btw avoid using ajino moto, its very very harmful, the only reason i avoid eating chinese is becoz of ajinomoto, even u have to use than substitute with baking soda. tak care buddy!
