This creamy soup is perfect as an appetizer on a chilly winter night .Green peas are high in protein and keep your body warm during the cold season. They also work as antioxidants in detoxifying your body. I prefer to make this soup with fresh green peas and not the canned or frozen ones.
Garlic3 to 4 cloves
black pepper1 tbsp. crushed
Lemon juice1 tsp
green chilies1 finely chopped
Vegetable oil1 tsp
Boil the green peas with garlic and salt till soft.
Blend in a grinder till smooth.
Heat 1 tsp of oil and add the peas puree.
Add the cream ,cook in a low flame.
Add 1/2 cup of water if the soup becomes thick.
Add chopped green chilies and check salt.
Take it off from heat and drizzle lemon juice.
top with a tbsp. of butter and crushed black pepper and serve hot.
Note: The peas should be properly boiled. Otherwise the puree is not smooth ,it is chunky. In that case pass through a sieve to remove the chunks.
