Broccoli Soup - Winter Special - Healthy Recipe.
Creamy, yummy and healthy - Broccoli soup is a must-have during Winter. Super easy to make and can be made in a jiffy.
In a kadhai or a pan, take 1/2-1 cup water to this add diced onion and potato. Let them cook in the boiling water. We want the onion-potato to get mushy/cooked. Keep the gas on low flame.
In the same water, now add broccoli and cook it till it becomes tender and soft. You can add more water if you want. The idea is to get all the vegetables cooked. Keep it aside so that it cools down. Once cooled down, grind it using a hand blender and make a smooth puree of it. Keep it aside.
Now we will make the white sauce. In a deep bottomed pan or kadhai, add milk, cornflour and butter. Keep stirring till it becomes thick in consistency. Make sure to stir properly in order to avoid any lumps.
Add white sauce in the broccoli puree and mix it well. At this stage you can adjust the consistency. Add water if require and boil it again.
Add red chilli flakes, salt, black pepper powder and garlic infused oil. Mix everything well.
Before serving sprinkle red chilli flakes and drizzle a bit of garlic butter/oil.
Tada! Broccoli soup is ready to serve.
For making Garlic Oil - Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a pan, to it add crushed garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes. Take out the garlic and use the oil.
