Recipe Author: Madhushree
- 2 nos medium sized corn cobs
- 4 tbsp vegetable broth powder
- 1 cup mixed vegetables carrots, peas, beans and cauliflower roughly chopped into small cubes
- 2 tsp corn flour
- 1 tsp Butter
- 1 tsp crushed black pepper for garnish
- salt as required
- 1.6 ltrs water
- 1 tbsp fresh cream for garnish
For making this in the automatic soup maker, you just have to put all the ingredients in the soup maker together (except the corn flour, fresh cream and balck pepper) and turn it on the blended soup mode.
In the meanwhile, make a slurry of the corn flour with little bit of water and after 20 minutes when the soup is done, remove the lid and pour in the slurry. Turn on the soup make for another 10 minutes on the same mode.
After that switch it off and garnish with fresh cream and crushed black pepper and serve with some warm bread.
If you do not have an automatic soup maker, then you need to boil the sweet corn and the mixed vegetables first in a pressure cooker with some water. Then you have to blend it. Finally in a pan, add some butter and cook the blended puree with the vegetable broth powder for sometime till all the raw smell goes off. Then add the corn flour slurry and give it one boil to thicken. The quantity of the water that you put in the pan depends on the thickness of the soup that you want. garnish with black pepper and fresh cream and serve.
In case you do not have vegetable broth powder, then you can simply add vegetable stock or water. In that case, you may have to add a little extra corn flour (maybe 1 tsp more).
In case you are making the soup in the regular way and not in the soup maker, you might have to strain the corn puree through a fine mesh after you have blended it. Also you will need to boil it for longer period, in case the quality of the corn is not good and has dried out. For regular sweet corn, just boiling for 5 - 10 minutes works fine or a couple of whistles in the pressure cooker.
