Beet Soup : Jet Red Soup

Pune climate changes in a day, as the showers are in, it becomes very pleasant and quite cool. So off goes the Cool summer drinks and are immediately replaced with hot soups.


I have planned to prepare soups regularly this year, just to add up some flavour to our regular dinner. And I started off with a very healthy beetroot soup.


Normally beet is not a favourite veggie, but I love its colour and hence use it in number of recipes. But the soup was something which required just the veggie except anything else. I was a bit apprehensive, but the outcome was quite delicious hence I clicked some last minute snaps and here it goes.


You Do:

  1. Boil- Pressure Cook the beet.
  2. Once cooled, peel the thick skin.
  3. Then blend it through a blender or mixer.
  4. Boil this blended juice with some water, add to make the thickness in accordance with your taste.
  5. Add salt, black pepper and sugar as per taste.
  6. Heat a tadka pan, heat ghee, add cumin seeds. Once they splutter add this tadka over the beet juice.
  7. Mix and boil for couple of mins.

Serve hot.

Happy Cooking and Posting about it Smile
