Ash Gourd Peel & Green Onion Soup


Yesterday, I prepared ash gourd kootu (will be posting the recipe shortly). I didn't throw away the peels instead I made the soup along with green onions. The soup came out in beautiful colour and it tasted so good.

Ingredients :

1. Ash Gourd Peel - 1 Cup
2. Green Onion - 1/4 Cup (Chopped)
3. Onion - 1/4 Cup (Chopped)
4. Garlic - 2 Cloves
5. Salt - Needed Qty
6. Milk - 1 Cup (Boiled & Cooled)
7. Pepper Powder - 1 tsp
8. Onion - 4 tsp
9. Coriander - For Garnishing



Procedure :

1. Take oil in a pan. Add the peels. Fry in medium flame for few minutes or till they became soft.
2. Then add the green onion, onion and garlic. Fry for few minutes.
3. Add salt, pepper powder and water and cook.
4. Once cooking is over, cool the contents.
5. Transfer to a blender, add milk. Blend till smooth.
6. Heat and serve hot.

Serves : 1

This participates in Priya's "Healing Food - Onion", an event started by Siri, Padma's "CWS - Pepper", an event started by Priya. and my event"Best Out of Waste".
