Creamy Carrot Soup

The Last day of Blogging Marahthon#26, Week3, i m posting a simple, easy to make, Carrot Soup. During my childhood days,  Soup is something we taste only in hotels. So, whenever, we get a chance to go to hotels, the first thing we order would be Tomato Soup. The thick orange-y red soup with 4-5 bread croutons on top, we loved it a lot. 

Growing up in a Tamil-Brahman Family, the only soup we tasted was amma’s Tomato rasam, ohhh!! what a flavor and aroma it still has!!! So, me too followed the same tradition of making the humble rasam or the Osaman as the soup. But then recently for the tried n tasted announced by priya, i tried Carrot Soup from Sharmi’s Space, it came out so well, now i make this very often, but in my issshhhtyle!!!!

Recipe Adapted from Sharmi’s Passions

1 Medium Carrot
1 clove of garlic, half of one medium sized Onion
