Recipe – Fried Capsicum in Toddler’s Soup
Have you tried giving capsicum to your child? They are great to taste when added raw or fried. Both different type of tastes. But when added to any soup or salad, the entire set up gets changed.
Here is one such attempt of mine.
I added fried capsicum along with other Indian spices to my daughter‘s soup.
Have a look below for the recipe.
You will need:
Chopped capsicum, chopped tomato, garlic pieces, coriander powder, cumin powder, salt, barley.
You know in what quantity you have to make the soup. So accordingly choose the amount of ingredients you are going to use. But note that cumin powder has to be used in half the quantity of coriander powder.
Method of preparation:
- First of all soak pearl barley in a bowl of warm water and keep aside.
- Now, heat a spoon of cooking oil or butter in a pan.
- Add jeera seeds (this step is optional)
- Add garlic pieces and sauté for a minute.
- Then add capsicum pieces and tomato pieces.
- Sauté them well.
- Add coriander and cumin powder and heat for few more minutes.
- Transfer into a different bowl and set aside until the barley is ready.
By now you know how to cook barley. Yet, I will repeat here.
- Now bring back the soaked barley.
- Drain the water and wash the barley well.
- Add water or milk and blend to make a fine paste.
- Now heat a cup of water.
- When the water boils, add the barley paste you just made.
- Stir well without any intervals. Else you will see barley forming lumps in hot water.
- Boil for at least 10 minutes. Adjust the consistency by adding more water if needed.
- Add salt and the sauted capsicum and tomato to the barley.
- Let everything boil together for another one minute so that they blend well together.
Serve your child warm soup. This is definitely very good filler and a healthy recipe for kids. It tastes good too.
Do give it a try.
