Nowadays my child keeps saying mamma I want to have soups. Instead of making preparing soups using ready to make powders available in any grocery shops, this time I thought of trying my hand in pumpkin soup. This is easy and yummy at the same time which attracted me. My daughter and hubby both loved it instantly and my daughter said she wants to have it tomorrow again. J

Ingredients:

Pumpkin – 250gms
Sliced onion – 1 medium
Tomato pulp – 2 tbsp
Salt
Sugar
Crushed black pepper
Parmesan cheese – 2 tsp
Cream – 1 tbsp
Butter – 1 tbsp
 
pumpkin soup
Pumpkin Soup

Recipe:

First cut the pumpkin into cube size.
Put butter in a heavy bottom pan or pressure cooker (I used pressure cooker).
When it starts to melt add sliced onion and stir for 1 minute.
Add pumpkin and tomato pulp (here I used canned pulp. You can use fresh tomato. In that case use 1 tomato) and mix it.
Add 2 cups water and wait for 2 whistle.
Take out from fire and release the steam and let it cool down.
After 10 minutes when it will be in room temperature put it in a blender and blend it well.
Now take a nonstick pan and put this blended pumpkin.
Now it’s time for seasoning - add salt, sugar (optional), crusher black pepper.
Add herbs as per your choice, parmesan cheese 2 tsp (you can avoid it if you want) and let it boil.
If you like creamy texture of soup then no need to add water otherwise you can add half cup of water. Let it boil 2-3 minutes.
Add 1 tbsp cream and stir it well.
After 1 minute take out from fire and serve hot with some of cream.

Enjoy and let me know how it turned around at your end. Happy cooking J
