Potato and Carrot Soup

I am making soup as part of our regular meals these days. First reason, it is easy to make, secondly it fills up good with a good side of toast or any good home-made bread. Last week i made a variety of naans as part of Blogging Marathon, to pair along i made a soup everyday.  I made this creamy soup to pair along with the naan-e-barbari(flat-bread). The boys enjoyed both the soup and the bread.
Ingredients (makes 4-5 servings)
2 nos Potato, peeled and cubed
2 no Carrots, peeled and cubed
1 stick of celery, chopped
1 onion, chopped
3-4 cloves of garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp paav bhaaji masala
2 cups of water/vegetable stock
1 cup of milk
1 tbsp butter
Salt and Pepper as per taste

  • Heat a tbsp of butter in a pressure pan, add chopped onions and garlic and saute until onions turn pink. Next add cubed potatoes, carrots and celery.
  • Saute for a minute or two and add 2 cups of water/stock, salt and paav bhaji masala. Mix well and pressure cook for 4-5 whistles. 
  • Once the pressure is down, blend the mixture using a hand blender, add extra water/milk to thin down the soup. I added a cup of milk to the soup. 
  • Heat the. soup for 8 minutes in a medium flame. Take it off the heat, serve hot garnished with freshly ground pepper. I served along with naan-e-barbari for dinner.
