Piping Hot Carrot Onion Soup With Lots of Crushed Pepper Powder And Rice Crispies ....
Peel the skin of 2 large sized carrots and cut them into rings or cubes. Peel off the skin of 2 medium sized onions and chop them also in the same way. Clean and chop one inch piece of ginger into small pieces. Also peel and chop 5-6 garlic the same way (Optional)
Heat one tablespoon of butter in a pressure pan. Add in the garlic, ginger and fry for a minute. Then add in the onions and fry for 2-3 minutes.
Now add the carrots and mix well. Add 2 cups of water and pressure cook on medium heat to 4 whistles. Let the pressure drop on its own. Once you are able to remove the lid open up and let the cooked ingredients cool down to room temperature.
Put all the ingredients in a blender / mixer and grind it to a smooth paste. Remove and sieve through a medium size holed sieve. Add water if necessary. Bring the soup to a boil, lower the heat, add salt to taste and 2 tblsp of coarsely crushed pepper powder. Mix well and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
Remove and serve hot with bread, croutons, toast or rice crispies. You can serve this soup as it is also. This soup should however be served hot and it tastes best when piping hot.
