Stir-Fry Veg Garlic Soup

How I made This Quick Soup At-a-Glance:

I believe this is one of the easier and healthier soups I have made in a jiffy. I used red chili-ginger-garlic paste, shredded cabbage, chopped red capsicum, spring onion whites & greens, butter, corn flour, and lemon juice for making this soup.

To start with, soak kashmiri red chili powder or any other red chili powder in just enough water to cover them for 10 minutes. Grind, soaked red chili powder, garlic, and ginger to get a coarse paste. Pour this paste into a deep pan. Add a teaspoon butter to it. Turn on the heat. Saute the mix till it boils for a while and emits a nice aroma. Throw in spring onion whites. Saute for 2 minutes. Add shredded cabbage, red capsicum, and salt. Saute on high fire for 3-4 minutes. Pour 2 glasses of water. Let the mix boil. Add some corn flour mixed with water. Stir well. Turn off the fire after 2 minutes. Squeeze lemon juice. Add two pinches of sugar to balance the taste.

Stir-fry veggie garlic soup is ready to serve. Pour it equally into four bowls. Garnish with a few chopped spring onion greens or coriander leaves. Enjoy sipping this spicy hot soup on a cold evening!
