VEGETABLE SWEET CORN SOUP

Our dinner tonite was just steamed dumplings and sweet corn soup. The dumplings were from trader joes. they have this nice variety of vegetarian dumplings. All you need to do is steam or pan fry them. I steamed them. The weather was just perfect for some hot steaming soup. So I decided to make vegetable sweet corn soup. A very famous soup in all the Chinese restaurants on India. Yet another Indian Chinese speciality.
I must admit I did take a little bit of a short cut here, but it paid off and tasted good too. actually as I was making the soup, I realised I had run out of cornstarch. But then I found a packet of Knorr sweet corn soup. So here is what I did.

You will need
  • knorr corn soup- 2 tbsp or regular corn starch.
  • milk- 1 cup
  • vegetable of chicken broth- 1 cup
  • carrots (diced)- 1
  • green onions (diced)- 1-2
  • tinned sweet corn- 1 cup with the liquid.
  • butter- 1 tbsp
  • sugar- 1/4th tsp
  • salt and pepper- to taste.
You have to
  1. heat a sauce pan. melt the butter
  2. add the carrots and saute till soft. add the green onions and the entire corn with the liquid.
  3. add salt and pepper to taste and the sugar.
  4. add the milk.
  5. dissolve the corn starch or the soup mix (knorr) in the broth.
  6. pour it in the saucepan.
  7. cook till it comes to a boil and begins to thicken a bit.
  8. serve it hot. You can add some chilly sauce if you like it spicy.
enjoy
