Decoration: Carved the capsicum top out to make a flower vase. Made an arrangement using spring onion tops with buds and a paper flower that I made.
I am back from my vacation and badly down with cold and cough. Yup it happens! When the climate, water and surroundings change drastically, its hard to maintain fitness. All you can do is get back and take rest for a week with a hot soup everyday. I am sure one can be back with josh as I am now. :):):)
Spring onion and capsicum are really healthy green vegetables and say what about noodles.. :) its universal favorite of all. So combined them all to make a very exciting soup.
Diced capsicum - 1/4 cup
Finely chopped spring onion / onion - 1/4 cup
Chopped spring onion tops - 1/4 cup
Aji-n0-moto - a pinch(It enhances the taste. But health conscious ppl can avoid it. May be next time I too will avoid it :) )
Butter - 2 tsp
Cooked noodles - 1/2 cup
Milk - 1/2 cup
Corn flour - 1 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder - for taste
Grated cheese - for topping(optional)
Salt - for taste
Heat the butter in a pressure pan and fry chopped spring onion and capsicum. Add aji-no-moto and little sugar to it and fry for few minutes. Add 3/4 th of the spring onion tops. Now sprinkle some corn flour and pour enough water or stock and pressure cook for one whistle. Let this cool for a while. Now puree the cooked mixture in mixie and strain well. (don't strain if you like your soup chunky)
Crush noodles to small pieces and cook till it becomes soft in just enough water and keep it aside.
Now add milk and cooked noodles along with enough salt to the pureed mixture and reheat in reduced flame.
Spring onion capsicum noodles soup is ready to eat.
Serve it hot topped with grated cheese, pepper and rest of the finely chopped spring onion tops. :)
Happy making. :)
