For a past few months, I have been taking more of soups and salads for dinner.I found it interesting and exciting so that I could prepare new recipes and experiment.
This in turn created a fondness for soup in my family and even the kids started to enjoy the soups. Apart from the clear soups, I prefer chunky ones and those which will make a meal by itself.
One such creation is this soup which was born out of bits and pieces of ingredients that were remaining in the freezer.
And once again this post is for Blogging Marathon #54, Week 4, Day 3, where I selected on ingredient from the list that Srivalli provided in the BM #54 announcement
Pasta - 1/2 cup
Vegetable stock - 2 cup / more
Boiled Kaala Channa - 1/2 cup
Boiled peanuts- 1/8 cup
Kitchen king masala - 1 teaspoon
Celery- 1 stalk,chopped
Garlic-2 pods, chopped
Salt to taste
Heat oil in a pan and add onion, celery, garlic and saute till the onion turns light brown. Add vegetable stock and when it comes to a boil add pasta and simmer till the pasta is done. Add more stock if needed.Now put in kitchen king masala and salt.
Add boiled peanuts and Kaala channa and simmer for a few minutes. Remove from heat and serve warm garnished with coriander leaves.
- Water can be used instead of vegetable stock.
- Celery is optional.
- Any bean can be used instead of kaala channa.
