Cream of Mushroom Soup Recipe / Mushroom Soup Recipe /


We have recently decided to have soups daily, Since it is very healthy for our body and helps in reducing weight. This is a good news for you, you can see lots more soup recipe in this blog soon..So far i made sweet corn soupveg milk soup, spinach soup and few more soups. This is the soup which i made yesterday and hubby totally loved it and gulped the whole jug, so i decided it is time to share it immediately..


This soup is light, fresh and low in fat. I used a tiny amount of butter for making this, you can totally use oil. And instead of maida you can use wheat flour too. The original recipe calls for cream but i skipped that and used milk. It tasted amazing..I will soon share the spinach soup too. For more soup recipes from this blog, check this link.. 


Preparation time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 15 to 20 mins
Serves : 4 to 5

Ingredients:

Onion - 1 medium size chopped very finely
Garlic - 2 cloves chopped very finely
Mushrooms - 200 grams sliced 
Butter - 1 tsp
Bay Leaf - 1
All Purpose Flour / Maida - 2 tblspn
Water - 3 cups
Milk - 1 cup
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Coriander leaves - 2 tblspn finely chopped

Method:

Heat butter in a soup pan or sauce pan. Add in bayleaf and saute for a min.

Add in finely chopped onions and garlic, saute it for couple of mins till it turn translucent.

Add in sliced mushroom and toss well in the butter. As you saute water will leach out, cook on a high heat. the water will evaporate and mushrooms will start getting brown. 

Now add in maida and mix well. Saute it for a good 3 mins till the floury taste disappear.

Now add in water and mix well, add in salt and pepper to taste.

Bring it boil, once it starts to boil, let it simmer for 3 mins. Take the bayleaf out.

Add in milk and mix once.

Switch off the heat and add coriander leaves. 

serve hot.

  9. If I use fresh cream, will the measurement for water and milk change, if so how much would recommend? I would prefer a thicker consistency than one in the picture..
