Butter: 1 tablespoon.
Herbs: 1 small bunch of fresh coriander leaves.
Seasonings: salt and pepper.
Lemon Juice: 1 freshly squeezed lemon
Corn flour: Optional
Heat butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add sliced onion, finely chopped ginger, garlic and saute for 30 secs until they turn translucent.
Add the chopped vegetables, saute for 2 minutes and then add 500 ml of water, salt, and black pepper and bring it to boil. Don't over cook the vegetables, let the colour retain.
Switch off the flame and add the lime juice and coriander leaves and mix well.
Serve hot with a slice of garlic bread.
Adding corn flour is optional if you like your soup thick. In a small mixing bowl, combine one tablespoon of cornflour and ¼ cup of water. Mix until there are no lumps.
Add the cornflour slurry and bring the soup to a boil. The soup would thicken a bit. At this stage, turn off the gas flame.
