This soup is one of the staples at my parents' place. Since we had soup for dinner almost every night, Amma had to ensure that there was enough variety. What I love about this particular soup is that Amma always put in alphabet pasta. I made this soup minus the pasta as I don't even know where to look for alphabet or soup pasta here. But I've figured that this soup tastes divine even without the pasta. Since I have chopped vegetables in the freezer, this soup comes together in a jiffy.
1 cup Mixed Vegetables, finely chopped (I used carrot, beans and peas)
1 Onion, finely chopped
1 tsp Garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp Chilli flakes
1 tsp Basil
1 tsp Parsley
2 tbsp Alphabet Pasta (optional)
2 tbsp Cheese, grated
1 cup Milk
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 tsp Oil
Heat the oil in a pressure pan. Add the garlic and the onions. Fry for a minute or two. Add the chopped vegetables and pasta, if using, along with the chilli flakes, basil and parsley. Add the salt and fry for a minute. Add about 1 cup of water and pressure cook for 3 whistles (approx. ten minutes).
Add the milk and bring the mixture to a boil. Add the cheese, season with salt and pepper and enjoy your meal. This soup tastes great with some garlic bread or mushroom melts. I like to have it as it is.
