Gingered Carrot Soup For T & C

For this month's edition of Taste and Create, I was paired with Min of Bad Girl's Kitchen. This is the second time were are trying out recipes from each other's blog.I had bookmarked this recipe earlier but found time to make it now.

This carrot soup is really creamy and thick and very filling. The addition of cashew to this soup takes the soup to another level!

I used:
Recipe Source:Bad Girl's Kitchen

Carrots - 2 large, peeled and roughly chopped
Ginger - 1 1/2 tablespoons
Cashew,roasted- a handful
Onion- 1 ,peeled and roughly chopped
Garlic-2 pods, minced
Roasted cumin powder- 1/4 teaspoon
Roasted fennel powder- 1/4 teaspoon
Chili powder- 1/2 teaspoon

  1. Heat oil in a pressure cooker and put in onion,ginger and garlic.Saute for a couple of minutes
  2. Put in the carrots and add 2 cups of water , salt and pressure cook for 2 whistles or till the carrots are soft.
  3. Cool and puree [with the liquid used to cook it] along with the roasted cashews.
  4. Transfer the the puree onto a pan and bring the soup to a boil.
  5. Put in cumin powder, fennel powder, chili powder.
