Mixed Beans soup-Bean soup-Beans soup recipe (Vegetarian-Indian)

mixed beans soupThis mixed beans soup is very tasty, healthy and also filling. I have prepared it in Indian style. This soup is rich in fiber, protein and is quite a meal by itself. Let us go the the mixed soup recipe-

Ingredients needed

Mixed beans -1/2 cup
Onion (finely chopped) -1
Garlic cloves (finely chopped) -4
Butter -1 tbsp
Tomato - 3 big blanched and pureed- How to blanch tomatoes?
Water - 2 cups
Salt and pepper as required
All purpose flour (maida) -1/2 tsp

Preparation

Soak beans overnight. Rinse it, add a cup of fresh water and pressure cook beans with salt for 3 whistles.The beans seeds should be soft but not mushy.

Blanch tomatoes and puree it in a blender.

Method

Melt half tbsp of butter in a pan, add onions, garlic and saute for a few seconds.

Then add tomato puree, cooked beans, 2 cups of water and needed salt. Pressure cook for 1 whistle and simmer for another 10 minutes. Switch off the flame.

Melt the remaining butter over medium heat, add flour stirring continuously.

Once the flour changes color and looses its raw flavor, (which will take only few seconds) add the soup slowly constantly stirring so that no lumps are formed.

Reheat the soup, add needed pepper powder.

Serve hot with bread croutons, cream or butter (anything you prefer) or have it hot just like that.
