Broccoli almond cheese soup.
A healthy and delicious soup by Vishal Amin. Always amazed by his food photography and recipes. Super talented Vishal is not only avid cook but a businessman, excellent photographer, musician and traveller.
I saw this soup on Instagram and requested Vishal to share the recipe with my readers.
So here is his first guest post for this blog. Thanks Vishal for this wonderful recipe.
Now over to Vishal Amin.
‘Railway Mutton Curry’
The dish that introduced me to Sujata Roy.
This dish was suggested by my sister as it was her most favourite mutton back in days when she was a non-Vegetarian.
I searched for it in a food group and I saw ‘Batter Up With Sujata’
And I fell in love with the story that she had narrated about ‘Railway Mutton Curry’. As my sister had told me the same history about this dish.
I was even more amazed after making the dish following Sujata Roy’s recipe of the same.
She is not just a Home Cook. She is a Mother who is a Home Chef. And you see a lot of that love on her face! I feel, there’s no better chef in the world than a Mother.
Thank you Sujataji for making me part of your wonderful blog.
I, Vishal Amin, am a businessman involved in the manufacturing sector. Different food ingredients interested me from my childhood. It was my Mom’s wish to make me extremely Independent from young age. One fine Sunday morning, she handed me a pan and few eggs. And said ‘Mr Amin’, make your own breakfast. And I was only 10.
I can’t believe that I managed to make an Omelette but turned it into Bhurji without salt 🙂
But yes, from that day began my love story with cooking! For the last few years it has become my passion.
Yes, I experiment a lot in the kitchen. So I am a Home Cook who loves to chop onions a lot.
My biggest winner is that, ‘I never make same mistakes twice’
Today I am presenting a simple bowl of hearty ‘Broccoli Almond and Cheese Soup’
A simple recipe which is easy to follow for anyone.
I hope you like it!
