Chickpea Soup

Deepika of Recipe for Dee-saster blog sent in this healthy soup recipe for the WYF:Soups/Salads/Starter event and winters are the perfect occassions to try out all varieties of soups. Here is the healthy and filling soup with slight changes to the original version..


1/2 cup chickpeas(kabuli channa, kondakadalai)(soaked overnight and pressure cooked)
1 green chilli
1/2 tsp ginger paste
Salt to taste
Pepper powder
1 tsp oil
1/2 tsp cumin seeds

Heat oil, add cumin seeds. When it splutters, add the rest of the ingredients and cook for a minute. Cool and grind it to a coarse paste. Heat it with some water till it starts boiling.

Serve hot with croutons of your choice.
