Monsoon Series Comfort Food – 1/30

When its pouring outside, a warm savoury soup or porridge  will be the perfect companion. Put that soup in a bread bowl topped with cheese; you got your self the perfect company during the rains. In this recipe, part of our monsoon comfort foods we cook up a delicious vegetarian breadbowl soup made of soya granules that is quick and easy. The breadbowl is a good way to serve the soup but it is obviously not mandatory for this soup. The Soya keema soup can relished as is or you can go with some fried rice since it is a viscous soup that makes a good ‘gravy’ as well.

  1. Granulated Soya
  2. Oil
  3. Onion paste
  4. Ginger Garlic Paste
  5. Veg Broth
  6. Green and yellow capsicum
  7. Cumin powder
  8. Coriander powder
  9. Masala powder
  10. Chilli powder
  11. Green chillies
  12. Strong cheese like Cheddar

Since we have freshly made burger buns inhouse at Basil Cantina we are scooping out the guts of the buns and filling it with soup. We garnish it with paprika and cheddar cheese. Enjoy before you mush up the breadbowl.

This soup meal was thoroughly enjoyed by the team, especially with the cooler, wet climate outside. The bread goes really well with the soup and I would really like to try the same rich soup with a rice of some sorts. Go ahead and try this recipe while it is still raining.
