Ghia/ Bottle Gourd Soup
2 cups ghia chopped
1/2 cup onions sliced
2 tsps oil
1/4 tsp cumin
An absolutely no fuss recipe. A delight to the palate.
Heat the oil in a vessel.
Tip in the oil/ butter. Add the cumin. Add the onions and sauté till transparent. Now add the Ghia sauté for a min. Pour in 4 cups of some reserved broth or water.
Add the salt and pepper. Since I used a cooker I gave it to whistles.
Let the cooker cool. Open the lid. Cool. Blend in a blender till smooth.
Add in more water or broth if it’s too thick.
Give it a boil. Just before serving mix in a dash of lemon juice. Sprinkle some parsley. Top the soup with a few bits of roasted garlic.
Can even add some grated cheese.
