Carrot Soup | Cream of Carrot Soup Recipe

Amma makes carrot soup often esp during the cold winters. I love tomato soup , sweet corn soup the best of all soups creamy and yummy now this carrot soup has topped the list too. I tried this soup for my daughter and she liked it very much, she is a fussy eater when it comes to vegetables just like her mother ;) so have to sneak in carrots in the form of soups or kheer.

Carrot Soup Recipe
Serve hot or warm with garlic bread or soup sticks.

Not being a soupy person I love this soup for its slight sweetness from the carrots with a hint of hotness from the pepper yumm soup perfect for this chilly weather now in CBE.
Carrot Soup Recipe

My Notes:
  • You can also add half and half of cream with milk to get a richer soup else skip milk/cream and make it a simple carrot soup.
  • You can also pressure cook the carrots and grind it with sauted garlic.
  • The carrot soup is slightly sweet with milk and the sweetness in the carrot, so add pepper powder accordingly.
  • Choose tender fresh carrots for the soup. The color of the soup totally depends on the carrots.
