This Winter morning chill winds made a perfect day to have a hot bowl of soup. So the question was which of the known soups shall I make or might I try a new soup today. Since kids are on a vacation, adding a pasta to soup will be a good meal option. With these thoughts in mind, I decided to make an Italian Pasta Soup. Not a tough one really. What essentially I needed was Red Kidney Beans (Rajma), Pasta (I have used Elbow-shaped) and various vegetables of the season. Talking about Nutrition, Rajma is a rice source of proteins and it lowers cholesterol and is good for diabetics. For Pasta, I have taken elbow shaped pasta. You can take any other shape as well. While you chop veggies, You can boil pasta in sufficient water and rinse it thoroughly thereafter. For Rajma (Kidney Beans), You can take canned but the freshly boiled ones add special flavour to the recipe. They are hard to cook so you can soak them overnight or 3 hrs early in hot water. Drain soaked water and transfer Beans to Pressure Cooker and add water with salt. Give 2 full whistles and simmer for 15 min. Generally this soup is preferred with rice so I also made rice with this delicious soup.
What was a trial, turned out to be a great meal with rice. This innovation impressed my husband and he is asking which other cuisine I shall be trying my hands on. Well I haven’t really thought about it. But for sure, in next few days I would be making something new again. Hope you Enjoy it too. Share your experience with me.
