I had been to a local farmer’s market and had picked up some squash.And the day I picked it, I wanted to make a soup out of it.I think, this is one of the easiest of the soups.It was so good.Just realised, this is my 51st post.A starting of a milestone..
Squash- 2 small nos
Cinnamon stick- 1/2
Butter or margarine-2 table spoon
Water- as required
1.peel the skin and dice the squash into medium sized pieces. Pressure cook them giving 2 whistles.
2.Once the cooked squash cools, puree them in a blender along with cinnamon and cloves.
3.Melt butter in a soup pan, fry chopped onions until light brown.
4.Pour the pureed mixture into the pan, add salt and give it a slight boil just so the raw smell of cinnamon and cloves give away.
5.Add milk and stir well.Add water if necessary .Cook on low flame for 10 minutes.
6.Switch off and serve hot in a soup bowl,sprinkling some pepper powder and some grilled bread to go along the side.
Eddited to add: What wiki has to say about squash plant The squash that I got from the market was a local one and wasnt exactly in these kinda shapes..I missed to click a picture of the squash.
