Recipe Notes

Step 1

Ridge Gourd and Corn Soup Peel and dice the ridge gourd.

Step 2

Add water, cumin powder, herbs and ¼ teaspoon salt. Peel the onion and add it whole. Simmer till the gourd is tender. Leave aside to cool for 15-20 minutes. Lift out the onion and discard. Strain the cooked gourd to separate the stock and gourd pieces.

Step 3

Reserve about ¼ cup of gourd pieces and blend the rest with some of the stock, till smooth. (I use a Panasonic Super Mixer Grinder). Combine the remaining stock with the blended liquid.

Step 4
