Corn Spinach Soup


At present we Mumbaikars are experiencing a very pleasant cold climate in the evenings and sometimes chilly mornings . And having a hot comforting soup at such times in the evenings is very satisfying.

I love winter season because you don't feel tired and also the fruits and vegetables are available in plenty . Needless to say that I had brought lots of fresh vegetables from the market and so didn't get time to make an elaborate dinner . So decided to make a soup instead with some salad. 


Actually I wanted to make a simple sweet corn soup as I had bought some fresh tender sweet corn kernels but ended up adding some fresh tender spinach leaves and the the result was amazing. The soup tasted too good and did not take any extra time as such . The happy satisfied faces of all the family members was a well deserved reward .




 

Ingredients :

1 cup ......................fresh sweet corn kernels
15 to 20 ..................fresh spinach leaves ( don't use the stem )
1.............................onion ( finely chopped )
1 tbsp......................oil
1 tbsp.....................corn flour
1/4 cup + 3 cups ..................water
salt
sugar
pepper powder ( optional )



Method :

Boil fresh corn till tender.

Wash the spinach leaves thoroughly and chop them.

Heat oil in a thick bottom vessel and saute onion till translucent.

Now add the corn and 3 cups water and bring it to boil.

Add salt , sugar as per your liking.

Mix cornflour in 1/4 cup water and pour it in the boiling soup.

Stir continuously for 2 minutes.

The soup will become thick.

You can adjust the thickness of the soup by adjusting the cornflour used.

While serving sprinkle some pepper powder on top and serve piping hot soup.
