Green Peas & Yogurt Soup

Soup is a primarily liquid food, generally served warm (but may be hot or cold), that is made by combining ingredients such as meat and vegetables with stock, juice, water, or another liquid.
Traditionally, soups are classified into two main groups: clear soups and thick soups.
Making soups at home is easy and healthy . This Green Peas soup is very easy with a yummy taste.You can make this as a thick soup or a clear according to your taste .

Step 1: Rinse  green peas thoroughly and cook in microwave for about 2 minutes .You can boil them even by adding them directly to  boiling water and cook for a minute.Drain and store the water. Take a blender and blend  1 cup  green peas into a smooth puree .

Step 2: Take  a deep pan or vessel and  the vegetable stock & water drained from green peas  and cook for 8 to 10 minutes .

Step 3: Take another pan add olive oil and fry the green peas puree , it takes generally  4 to 5 minutes to fry the paste 

Step 4:When the paste is done , add onions , a little salt and garlic powder cover with a lid . When done add drained stock (store the vegetables ) into the puree  and panner cubes and bring it  to boil.

Step 5: Now take all the  vegetables  (except the green peas ) and make into a paste . Add the paste to the soup along with the green peas . Add salt and pepper as per taste .Switch off the stove .

Step 6: After switching off the stove add about  1.5 large table spoons of yogurt and mix it well. Serve either hot or cold .While serving top it with a little yogurt .

  • When green peas puree fries it gives out a sweet smell indicating it is done then you can add the onions , as we used a little of oil , oil will not ooze out when puree is fried.
  • You can prepare same soup with sweet corn replacing green peas 
  • Whisk the yogurt before adding it to the soup , so that it wont break even when added to hot soup .
  • You can add chicken instead of panner .
  • You can add the vegetables directly instead of making them into a puree , so that you can taste all veggies in each bite , I have used the veggies directly  instead of making them into a paste .
