Potato Soup for fasting

Today is Mahashivratri. I think most of the people keep fast on this day. For me fasting means some variety in food. I am tiered of eating same fasting food every time. One day I made this healthy and yummy Indian soup for myself. It's a whole meal and not contains lots of ghee or peanuts like all other fasting food has.


Ingredients

Boiled potato - 1 big

Curd - 2-3 tablespoon

Pure ghee - 1/2 teaspoon

Cumin seeds - 1/2 teaspoon

Green chilli - 1-2

Ginger - 1/2 inch

Sugar - 1/4 teaspoon

Salt as per taste


Procedure
Remove the skin of potato. Cut it into small cubes. Now make a paste of green chilli, 1/4 teaspoon cumin seeds and ginger. Now add curd and blend it once again. Then add potato cubes and Blend to a smooth paste in mixer. You can add 1/2 cup of water. Heat ghee in a kadai and add jeera. When the jeera crackles add the blended mixture. Now add sugar and salt .Allow to boil on a very slow flame. When it comes to desired consistency of soup, pour it in soup bowl and serve. If you are too calorie cautious then avoid tadka of ghee. It still tastes awesome. I can say you must try this very new way of enjoying your fasting day.


My try goes to Nivedita's "ONLY ORIGINAL" event which is brain child of Pari.

Hi dear,
The soup sounds so simple and yet interesting, my only contribution if I make this will be using saindha salt instead of the normal one.
