This winter I broke my own record, I have already posted a good amount of soup recipes which were phenomenal. I just Can't get enough of my Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Sumac and Tofu Croutons, and also my family favourite Tomato, Harissa, and Orzo Soup, plus the Roasted carrot, chickpea soup with lime and coriander vinaigrette and the fourth one being Roasted Cauliflower, Parsnip and walnut soup.  This shows that the weather controls our diets and I am totally fine with it having made all these flavourful soups.




After a long time, once again I'm participating in a group'Food Bloggers Recipe Swap' where a bunch of talented and creative food bloggers have come together and all the participants are paired up every other month. They recreate each other's recipe from their blog and post it on their own blog.  I absolutely love this idea, it's a learning process and at the same time it's fun to create all those delicious recipes.

Guess whom I am paired with? More than a just 'Fellow Food Blogger' Nayna of Simply.food. We do know each other since 2010, she is not only a fellow food blogger but more of a family friend and sometimes I feel she is an elder sister to me :) as I never come home empty handed whenever I meet her.  On a neat and systematic blog, she posts simple and delicious recipes that I and my family are lucky enough to actually taste some of them. So while I was searching through her recipes, I spotted Spicy Carrot Soup and straight away I made up my mind, as it was snowing very badly outside, this soup was just ideal. All I wanted was hot, healthy and delicious Soup with crusty bread. I checked the list of ingredients and Bingo! All the required ingredients were lying around in my fridge that morning.

Same day around lunchtime I had the soup ready, it did not take me a half an hour to prepare it and we really enjoyed this delicious soup. All flavours were spot on, the different flavours from each and every ingredient were coming through and the toasted sesame seeds added a really nice crunchy texture while the soup was silky smooth. I followed her recipe exactly, but just in the method, I used pressure cooker where she used a special equipment to cook the soup.

Notes:-
I used a pressure cooker to make this soup, you can make in a pan too. It may take longer to cook. 
Change spice level according to your needs. 
I only added the half the amount of soy sauce while it was cooking, as I wanted to pour over on top of the soup while I photographed.
