Easy Sweet Corn Soup Recipe
1 cob of sweet corn
1/2 cup of milk
1 tbls coriander leaves, chopped
1 green chilli (optional)
1 tsp corn starch
1/2 tsp sugar
1 tbls chopped spring onions (greens)
salt and pepper to taste
1. Clean the leaves and silk strands from the corn. Using a sharp knife, separate the corn kernels. Pressure cook with a cup of water and sugar. Reserve 2 –3 tbsp of corn for garnish.
2. Blend the rest well. I used my hand blender, if you are using a mixer, drain, reserve the water, and cool down and grind to a smooth paste. Strain it to remove the skin. This step is optional, but I do this always.
3. Add milk, the reserved corn kernels and bring to boil. Add the coriander leaves and if using green chilies, add it. Boil for 4 minutes and lastly add the corn flour dissolved in 2 tbsp of water. Boil until thick. Add salt and pepper generously and mix well. Garnish with the chopped spring onion if desired.
Simple yet healthy sweet corn soup is ready to enjoy. Serve hot with bread toast for a filling meal.
