Cabbage Soup

When Srivalli announced the themes for BM#26, i guess i chose it without giving it much thought. Have been struggling to find the proper recipes since then:-(…If you are wondering what is the issue is , let me tell you. I chose the theme, pick one and make it in three different ways as
3.Dessert. from three cookbooks. Theme 1 and 2 are easy but to accomodate the same for day 3 as dessert is quite challenging. Well, I decided to go with cabbage and this soup is from Mallika Badrinath’s book of soups
Cabbage     1 cup
Onion         1
Potato         1
Milk            1/4 cup
Oil               2 tsp
Pepper powder   as to taste
Salt                      as to taste

Shred the cabbage finely
Slice the onion into thin slices
Pressure cook the potato, remove the skin and let it cool
In a pressure pan add oil  and then in slow heat saute the onion slightly and then put the shredded cabbage in that and cook for a minute. Make sure the colour doesnt change.
Pour 2 cups water into this and pressure cook it upto 2 whistles. Let it cool
Grind onion cabbage mixture with water, potato and the milk till smooth
Pour this back into the pan and cook it with the necessary salt in a low flame for 3-4 minutes
Switch off the fire
Add the fresh ground pepper and serve warm!!!

I make a very similar little one PN.s regular basis. Just that i don't add much onions and don't.saute the cabbage before pressure cooking. I love it to. Looks very.good

I once went on a Cabbage Soup diet where you eat this soup several times a day but without the milk included in your recipe. It did make me lose weight but I grew an aversion to Cabbage Soup 🙂
