A bowl of hot soup is all I ask for in this cold weather. I usually make some or the other kind of soup when I reach home literally shivering. It is very challenging to come up with new soups as we get bored of having same again and again.
I usually keep a big batch of drumsticks in freezer. SoÂ when I saw a drumstick soup recipe in my collection, I wanted to give it a try. I changed it to suit our tastes. Increase the number of drumsticks if you like a strong taste of it. With the following amount, it had a mild taste of drumstick.
10-15 pieces of drumsticks
1/3 cup chopped onion
1 tea spn butter
1 bay leaf
1/2 tea spn pepper
Cook drumstick in enough water. Press it down with a spoon to remove all the juicy flesh or if you have more time, scoop out the fleshy part.
Discard the outer skin.
Blend it along with water used to cook them to get a smooth paste.
Heat butter and fry onions. Blend them to smooth paste.
Mix this with drumstick paste, add powdered cloves, bay leaf, pepper powder, salt and cook till soup thickens a bit. Serve hot with a dollop of butter on top.
