A delicious and a wholesome cauliflower soup for you to try. I added potatoes to give a little body to it. It can be substituted by masoor dal (Red lentils) or oats. A dash of lime will enhance the taste and flavour. Have it for a light dinner with some bread sticks.
- 2 cups cauliflower florets
- 1 small potato, cubed
- few coriander leaves
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1 bay leaf
- salt to taste
- 1/2 tsp. pepper powder or to taste
- 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
- 1/2 tsp. garam masala powder
- 1 tsp. coriander-cumin powder
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- few kafir lime leaves
Heat oil in a pan and saute the bay leaves. Then add the onion and garlic and fry till the onions turn translucent. Now add the cauliflower and potatoes and saute for 2-3 minutes on low flame till they turn slightly light brown in colour.
Add the salt, turmeric powder, pepper powder, coriander-cumin powder and garam masala powder and fry for a minute. Add 3 cups water, kafir lime leaves and coriander leaves and pressure cook for 3 whistles.
When done, discard the bay leaf and the kafir lime leaves. Blend to a puree. Heat through and serve with some bread sticks.
