In Mysore we don’t have many celebrity food shows organised so when Tarla Dalal visited Mysore for a Food Charity show, I jumped in to get the tickets and attend it. I remember ages ago she used to host a cookery show on a TV Channel and i used to follow it very regularly, then after the internet came i became a regular visitor of her site.
The Show was organised here last Monday and it was nice to finally see her in person. As i have not attended any food shows earlier, i had gone with a lot of expectation, I thought it will be a very interactive session where in we can ask her some of our questions…….but it was nothing like that. She cooked some of her signature recipes and the recipes were good. I was not able sit through the whole show as I had to come home early.
The same evening I did try 2 of her recipes one was the Spinach and Baby corn Soup and the second was a stuffed enchiladas . The soup was nice and good for a cold day. Overall it was a good experience and hope that many such demo’s happen in Mysore as well.
Now coming to the recipe below
Spinach and baby Corn Soup
Recipe From Tarla Dalal
1/4 Finely Chopped Onions
12 Small babycorns thinly sliced
3 Cup Finely Chopped Spinach
1 1/2 Cup Milk mixed with 1 1/2 cup of water
1 1/2 tbsp cornflour dissolved in 2 tbsp water
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
1 Slice Cheese (Optional)
Heat Butter in a pan and add onions , saute till it translucent
Add the bay corn and spinach and saute on a medium flame for 2-3 mins
Add the milk + water mix and bring to a boil.
Add the cornflour mix , salt, pepper and cook again for 3-4 mins while stirring continuously.
Remove from flame and blend using a hand blender till smooth.
Bring to boil again and if u want to add cheese u can add at it at this stage, give a boil and serve hot.
I followed the same recipe but halved the ingredients and added a cheese slice which was not mentioned in the original recipe.
I also added a Tbsp of Italian seasoning to the soup.
We had the soup with a Sandwich which i will be sharing with u all in a future post
