Mixed Vegetable Soup

I had been to my friend Priya's house and she asked me," hey sangeetha, would you like to have some thick soup?" I was thinking it was some fancy out of the box kind and readily said yes. Moveover my tummy was growling of hunger. But wait, she did not get some soup mix out of the pantry, instead she brought out some frozen veggies out of her refrigerator. Believe me, this is the best soup I have tasted ever and you wouldn't believe what goes in it. It's like your personality and it can be associated with you , with your likes and dislikes. It's a total Personalised Soup. Give it a try.

Frozen veggies like peas, carrots, beans, peppers- 2 cups
Tomato- 1 big
Onion- 1 medium
Green chillies- 3 or 4 depending on your level of spice
Ginger- 1" piece
Garlic- 2 or 3 cloves
Milk- 1 cup
Butter- 1 Tbs
Cumin powder- 1 tsp
Red chilly powder- 1 tsp
Coriander powder- 1 tsp
Garam masala powder- 1 tsp
Salt and pepper to taste

->Steam cook the frozen vegetables of choice in a microwave cooker or regular cooker. Drain the water and use to dilute the soup or add while mixing chapathi dough.

->Take 1 Tbs of butter in a pan. Add onions, green chillies, ginger and garlic and fry for a few minutes till the onion turns transparent.

->Add chopped tomato and fry.

->Add the steamed vegetables, salt, chilly powder, cumin powder, coriander powder and garam masala. You can add or remove any masala to your liking. Fry for a few more mins till the masalas are well coated on the vegetables.

->Grind this with 1 cup of milk to a smooth paste or to a consistency of choice.

->Serve with a dash of pepper with some bread or croutons.
