Red Capsicum Soup – Roasted Capsicum Soup

September 19, 2017 Soups  One comment

Soups are recently in demand at home, since the weather has started changing. Its getting really cold. I feel, a hot bowl of a filling soup in the evenings is a better alternative to tea/coffee. Later a light supper/dinner would do, to finish the day. This Red Capsicum Soup had been in my to do list since a long time. I usually prefer the green and yellow peppers as I feel the red ones have a slight fruity flavour. But the red ones served best in making this soup. It was so flavourful. The colour is very attractive to tempt kids as well.

Method:

  • Wash and pat dry a red capsicum. Poke it with a fork and roast it over low flame until it is roasted (turning it all sides in intervals) and has black spots. Let it cool completely. Remove the outer skin, de-seed it and chop roughly.

  

  • Heat a pan with oil and add chopped garlic. Saute until raw smell goes off. Add sliced onion and saute until brown. Add chopped tomato and saute.

Tips:

  1. U can add a tsp of sugar if the tomatoes are very sour.
  2. I have not de-seeded the tomatoes, so strained the soup. (not in the pic/video). U can have it as is too.
  3. Adjust spice levels according to your preference. Chilli flakes can be added too.
  4. U can use butter in place of olive oil.
  5. Add some fresh cream for extra richness.
