Sri Lankan vegetable soup

sri lankan vegetable soup

This is a very simple to make, yet healthy and delicious soup made sri lankan style.
Ideal for vegetarians.

Ingredients
1 small potato, peeled, and cut in to small pices
1 carrot , cleaned washed and cut into small pieces
½ small onion, finely sliced
handful of finely sliced Cabbage (Gowa)
½ tomato sliced
1 table spoon of olive oil (or any oil -Coconut, sunflower, vegetable)
2 cups of stock (either vegetable or chicken)
1 table spoon of mysore dhal (Parippu)
pinch of salt and pepper
5 pepper cones (gammiris)

How to cook
Mix all ingredients except oil, in a large pot. Boil for 20 minutes, make sure the potato pieces are well boiled. The soup would become thicker when it’s ready. Stir gently. Heat oil in another pot. Add the cooked soup to this pot with oil. This is called tempering, and it gives added goodness to the taste. If you are extremely health conscious, skip tempering. Now you have a piping hot, delicious soup. Serve with croûtons. If you wish you can make your own croûtons, simply by cutting a few slices of bread into small pieces, drizzling some olive oil on them and put them in the oven for 5 minutes @200 degrees celsius.

If you prefer a meat soup, please fry the finely slices meat at the beginning , before adding all the vegetables. You can add an egg add the end, when the soup is piping hot. This will make it look like a typical delicious Chinese soup.
