This one is the best soup ever. Creamy, cheesy like without cheese, rich and all around delicious. This ragi soup is kind of salad in DISGUISE. I mean it because in addition to being creamy and absolutely gorgeous, it is super nutritious. Just pause to think of the rainbow of vegetables in here: carrot, beans, peas, cauliflower and lots of greens. So didn’t I tell you, it’s truly SALAD in disguise.
When we are sitting right at the edge of soup season (hi WINTER), I am almost ready with this ragi (finger millet) soup wonder. And just waiting for the official winter season to start. But to be honest, I don’t need any reason or season to relish such a goodness of nutrients.
My son who stays away from most of the veggies that I put in any curry, loved this veggie loaded ragi soup and cleared the soup in no time. The veggies in this soup aren’t mushy and they have retained the crunch. The protein rich greens and vegetables easily got in to his tummy this way which is hard otherwise. So I have to be thankful enough for this creamy goodness.
Besides being good-for-all food, the soup can help you to lose weight too. It is because of flax seeds powder. Yes, these glossy seeds are good in OMEGA fatty acids and help towards losing weight(You can google to know more about flax seeds). Let me say few words about finger millet flour too. It is the star ingredient in giving the creamy, glossy look to the soup. But please be mindful about the lump formation, if you just throw in this flour in soup, it doesn’t combine well. So mix it with some water and make it like thin paste beforehand.
A big bowl of finger millet soup is enough to replace my dinner for sure. Let’s embrace the soup season!!
