Hubby loves corn, boil it, roast it any fashion he loves it. As a snack or as a meal, a side dish or main one he is game. So one of the first soups I learnt to make after marriage was Sweet Corn Soup.

There was a time when soup meant Sweet corn Soup. Now the alliance has shifted to Manchow Soup, Lung Fung etc. so there I have new soups that I have to learn.

The other day I had 3 sick people on my hands, cold, fever and running noses. If that was not enough there were complaints that the throat is itching.  So I decided to make soup.

What soup?

Anything? The devil in me smiled after all there was a Blogging Marathon coming up and I had chosen corn as my themes. In a corn dish falls in your lap so unexpectedly what do you do?

Exactly make Sweet Corn Soup!

Well then you will need the following

Ingredients:
  • 1 tin sweet corn cream style
  • 2 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 2 florets cauliflower, chopped
  • ½ capsicum, finely chopped
  • ½ cup cabbage
  • ½  tblspn butter
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 tsp  pepper
  • Salt
  • 1 ½ tblspn corn flower and about 1/4 cup water
  • ¼ cup milk (optional)
Method:
  •  Heat the butter and oil on low flame. Add the garlic and fry till the raw smell goes away.
  • Add the onion and fry till translucent. Set aside.
  • Meanwhile empty the sweet corn cream style tin of corn in another container.
  • Add 1 ½ tin of water and mix well. Add the onions and garlic.
  • Heat the container on medium flame stirring occasionally.
  • Once the mixture comes to boil add the carrots, cauliflower.
  • Add the seasonings. Stir and let it boil till the carrots change color.
  • Add the corn flour and water mixture stirring continuously.
  • Add the milk if using and bring to boil.
  • Add the capsicum and cabbage. (This is because we prefer these uncooked you can add them with the rest of the veggies).
  • And Serve hot.
Notes:
  • Cabbage tastes good in the soup but I forgot to add it in the model.
  • You can add Soya sauce about ½ tsp to get the authentic taste but I did not.
  • There were times when I added sugar about 1 tsp to my soup but these days I do not.

    although we make corn soup in the caribbean, our preparation is very different. I guess this is an Indo-Chinese version?
