Soups are so healthy and can be easily prepared. Whenever the weather is dull, I would like to try some soup variety at home. Initially, I was preparing the tomato soup alone at home. When I visited my friend’s place, I got introduced to different varieties of soup with simple recipe tips. Garlic Almond soup is one such variety and is always healthy to have home made soups
Preparation Time: 10 mins| Cooking Time : 15 Mins | Serves: 2-3
- Garlic pods 6
- Almond | Badam 15
- Potato* 1
- Milk 2 tblsp
- Butter 2 tsp
- Salt as needed
- Black pepper powder to taste
*Instead of potato you can add 1/2 cup chopped bottle gourd
Soak almonds in hot water for 15 minutes and remove the skin.
Pressure cook potato(taking out its skin) and garlic pods. Saute for 2 minutes till it givesa nice aroma. Be careful not to burn it and add 2 cups of water into it.
Cook till 3-4 whistles. Grind the almonds with the milk into a smooth paste. Keep it aside.
Grind the cooked potato and garlic. Do not discard the water. We will use it for the soup.
Transfer this to the cooker/ heavy bottomed pan. Add the almond paste to this.
Mix well. Boil this for 2 minutes. Add 1 cup of water to bring this to a soup consistency.
Add salt and pepper powder and mix well.
Garlic almond soup is ready to serve.
