Ingredients to make Golden Pumpkin and Carrot Soup

  • 500 gms yellow/orange Pumpkin, chopped into large pieces
  • 50 gms Red/Orange/Purple Carrot, chopped into large pieces
  • 3 cups of vegetable or chicken stock/water (For a different kick, use 2 cups of white wine and 1 cup stock or water)
  • Salt to taste
  • 3 tsp pepper
  • 2 Onions, sliced
  • 3-4 pods of Garlic, chopped (optional)
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • To garnish:
  • 2 tbsp Celery Leaves, chopped finely
  • 2 tsp cream

How to make Golden Pumpkin and Carrot Soup

  1. Steam the pumpkin and carrot pieces with 1/2 cup water in a pressure cooker for 3 whistles. Leave to cool and open.
  2. Heat the butter in a pan and add bay leaves. Then add the onions and garlic, saute till the onions start turning brownish. Add the steamed vegetables and stir for 2-3 minutes, then pour in the stock. Cover the pan and bring it to a boil.
  3. Next, add in the tea leaves. Lower the heat and cook for 5 minutes on a high flame for 2-3 minutes.Then close the pan and leave to cool for 10 minutes.
  4. Blend this mixture in a blender and strain through a sieve or a soup strainer into a separate saucepan. Place it on a medium heat and when it comes to a boil, add salt and pepper and whatever extra seasoning you want to add.
  5. Mix well and take off heat.
  6. Ladle into soup bowls and garnish with 1 tsp cream per bowl. Run a toothpick across the cream to get a lovely design.
  7. Sprinkle the chopped celery leaves on the cream and serve it hot and steaming with accompaniments of your choice.

My Tip:

I have used a whole ripe yellow/orange pumpkin for the soup. Do not use green pumpkin as the taste will differ and will be a little sour. You can use canned Pumpkin as well. The seasoning varies according to your taste.I have used salt and pepper.For those wanting a spicy Indian twist can add red chilli powder or Garam Masala. I have used celery leaves to garnish the soup. You can however use Coriander,Cilantro or Parsley as well. For a non-veg twist, add some boiled and shredded chicken or hard boiled and chopped eggs while heating the soup after pureeing and straining. A shredded omelette can be added if you want a peppy addition.
