Sweet Corn Soup

This Sunday a cousin of Hubby visited our house with her family from Cuddalore. As I was in the process of cleaning our house before shifting to a new place they couldn’t have visited a messier house ever before. It was a reprieve that we opted to have lunch out as the kids were running around and the place was full of empty cartons ready to be packed. Thank God for that. After finishing lunch we all went to a kids carnival hosted in Chennai trade centre along with our kids. The kids had a wonderful time. They started to Cuddalore from there itself being an easier option.

After returning home nobody was in a mood for any dinner as we had lots of ice creams and snacks at the carnival. But I didn’t want us to go to bed on an empty stomach (well almost). As I had some left over some from the pooja I decided to make corn soup which was quite filling and which was meal in itself. Quite light and not at all heavy on the stomach. As soups are Arjun’s favorite I didn’t have to entice him too much to have this.

Sweet Corn Soup


Corn on Cob - 4

White onions – 1

Butter – 1 tbsp

Milk – 1 cup

Water – ½ cup

Soy sauce – few drops

Ginger – ½ inch piece

Aji-no-moto – ½ tsp

White Pepper powder - to taste

Salt – to taste

Sugar – to taste


Heat the butter in a frying pan and sauté the chopped onions till they turn translucent. Grate the corn with the help of a grater. In a pressure cooker add the sautéed onions, grated corn, milk, water and the ginger piece and cook it for 10 minutes. Let it come to room temperature. Remove the ginger piece. Take 2-3 tbsp of cooked corn and keep it separately. Liquidize the remaining corn in a mixie. Pour it through a strainer. To the strained liquid add enough water or milk or a combination of both to the consistency you prefer.

Heat this soup along with salt, sugar, Aji-no-moto.. Add the cooked corn that you have kept separately. It is enough if just comes to a boil. While serving just add a few drops of soy sauce and sprinkle white pepper powder as per your taste. Sweet corn soup is ready to serve.

This Sweet Corn Soup is off to EC’s WYF: Light Meal Event.
