Soup Recipe -Green peas and coriander soup

Green peas and coriander soup

There's nothing more savory than a sip of a nice hot soup on cold winery nights. For me it's the best time to have varieties of soup as lots of fresh veggies are available now. Green peas and coriander makes a great combination, sometimes I even add coconut (grated) in this soup because coconut also tastes awesome with coriander. Lets start with the ingredients
Ingredients
Peas 4cups (frozen can also be used)
Fresh coriander leaves 2 tablespoons ( chopped)
Homemade chicken stock 3/4 cup ( if vegetarian then use veg stock or simply hot water)
Butter 1/2 stick
Onion 1/2 cup (chopped)
Garlic 2 cloves (chopped)
Salt and pepper to taste
Sugar 1/2 teaspoon
Directions
Take a heavy bottomed pan, add butter.
Add onion and garlic and cook for 3 to 4 mins.
Add peas and stock and bring to boil over high heat.
Reduce heat and simmer for 15 mins.
Now transfer half of the soup to a blender.
Process until smooth.
Repeat with the remaining mixture.
Now pour the mixture again into the pan on low heat.
Add chopped coriander, salt, sugar and pepper.
Cook for 5 mins.
Serve hot.
