What else is so comforting in this cold winter other than soup !!!!! Yah today I am posting a simple delicious soup which is so healthy that you can make within few minutes, with less ingredients. You can have this atleast 4 times a week as a part of your daily menu. One more interesting part of this soup is it has no oil and cream. But I promise it tastes delicious. Try it out...


Ingredients :

Spinach - 2 handful
Roasted cummin - 1 tsp
Green chilli - 2
Besan- 1 1/2 tsp

Method :

1. Dry roast the besan in a pan until nice aroma comes. Let it cool for a while.
2. Microwave washed spinach for 3 minutes.
3. Grind it with roasted cummin and green chilli to fine paste.
4. Now add little water to roasted besan to make a paste add this to the fine ground spinach.
5. Add little water and bring to boil , when the soup start boiling and slightly thickens. Switch off and serve hot with some salad.

Note :

You can adopt the same recipe for all types of greens but not Gongura. 
You can also add dash of cream or butter while serving.
Add the green chilli according to your taste.
Dont add too much of besan as it spoils the taste , just add little for thickening.

Enjoy Yummy and Healthy Hot Soup !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
