Curried Corn Bisque

I wanted to make a soup so searched online and found this on yahoo food but as usual had to make it my own. Soups can be really bland sometimes but not this one.

My photos did not turn out as great as the soup. Approximations used, please change as needed.So here is what I did

Potatoes: 1 small cubed
Carrot: 1/2 cubed
Onions: 1 small diced
Garlic: 2 cut finely
Frozen corn: 1 cup
Chicken Broth: 1 cup (you can use vegetable broth)
Water: 1 cup
Coconut milk: 1/2 cup
Salt, pepper as desired
Hot Sauce (I used sri racha) (hmmm 3 squeezes I guess)
Curry powder (I had madras curry powder) - 1-2 tbsp ( the more the merrier if you like more spice)

  • Saute onions, garlic in 1-2 tbsp of oil.

  • Once onions are browned, add the carrots, potatoes and let them cook until they are almost cooked. (They should be still firm but cooked)
  • Add salt, pepper, hot sauce, curry powder and stir them until all veggies are coated well.
  • Add the corn, chicken broth, water, salt, and pepper

  • Let them boil for 5-10 minutes and cool them. I used my hand blender and just blended them coarsely. I like my veggies chunky in the soup. If you are a person who likes there soup smooth, I guess blend it more. Once its blended put the pot back on the stove and add coconut milk and heat again.

  • Garnish with cilantro and enjoy!!!!!

To describe how it tastes... its sweet from the corn, spicy from the hot sauce and the curry powder and overall tasty and yummy.
