It rained today and i just finished making the Mushroom soup . What a coincidence . A slight nap after the soup made me fresh and peeping outside the window i found the roads too fresh cleaned by the rain .
Mushroom – 2 tins
Garlic – 2 flakes
Cinnamon- 1 inch
Low fat milk – 2 cups
Black peppercorn – 6
We prefer tinned mushrooms to fresh . But if you like you can prepare this soup with fresh mushrooms as well. Low fat Milk too can be substituted by whole or skim or fresh milk.
Wash and cut the mushrooms .
Reserve some mushrooms for garnishing and cut them into very small pieces .
Cut onion and garlic. The soup can be made in stove top or micro wave oven .
Heat oil and fry the mushroom pieces for garnishing well. Remove them after few seconds and keep aside.
Add the mushrooms, Black pepper and sauté well. Add little water and cover the vessel. Cook for few minutes .
When cool discard the cinnamon and cloves and grind the mushrooms with onion , garlic into a smooth paste .
Add this to milk and mix well. Simmer it . Add little salt as this soup is sensitive to salt .
When the soup starts boiling switch off the flame and serve with fried mushroom pieces on Top.
