BM #98 Week 4 Day 3 - 

This soup is loosely adapted from what my mom makes. I love the simple flavors of the vegetables. Adding coconut milk makes it richer and creamier. I alternate between coconut and coconut milk depending on what is available in my pantry.

It can be totally vegan if the garnish is avoided. More vegetables can be included like Spinach, Ash Gourd, Bottle Gourd etc..

Coconut, fresh/frozen 1/4 cup
Tomato, cubed 2 Tbsp

Method Of Preparation -

With the inner pot in place, add all the vegetables and coconut, adding salt, turmeric, rasam powder and amchur powder. Add water as needed (about 4 cups) . 

Power the Instant Pot and switch on the 'Manual' or 'Pressure cook' mode. Set the time to 6 minutes. Let it release the pressure naturally.

When it is safe to open the lid, use an immersion blender to make a fine puree. 

Set it to 'Saute' mode and let it simmer for a couple minutes.

Unplug the Instant Pot. Garnish with cream and coriander leaves. Serve and enjoy the hot soup.
