Borscht – A russian soup affair to remember!!!

Ah…….. at last I have been able to take time out of my busy office schedule and write a post… this was a veryy simple soup that i made some time is also called the Classic Russian Borscht… I have made the vegetarian version on this soup…here goes..


Potato : 1 nos med sized
Beet root: 2 nos med sized
carrot: 1/2 cup chopped
Tomatoes: 2 nos med sized
Spring onions with green stalk: 1 nos
butter: 1 tbsp
salt and pepper: according to taste
Sour cream : 1 tbsp per bowl ( since i did not get sour cream, i used very thick creamy curd) (for garnish)
Finely chopped cabbage : 1/2 cup
Bay leaf: 2 nos
Coriander leaves : 1 tsp (finely chopped per bowl)


1. Pressure cook all vegetables, bay leaf etc with little water ( 3 whistles at least)
2. In a food processor grind the vegetables and butter (remove the bay leaf while grinding).
3. Add the required amount of salt and pepper and pour equal amount in soup bowls.
4. Garnish with sour cream or in my case thick creamy curd and chopped coriander leaves and wolla a purpleish pink soup is ready to eat….
