Basil ginger soup- which is also called as Thulasi allam soup is very good for winter evenings. This recipe is passed to me from my grand mother. This hot soup is very soothing and can help to prevent cold / alleviate sore throat.

  • Basil / Thulasi leaves- a handful
  • Ginger / allam paste- 2 tbsp
  • Water - 2 cups
  • Corn powder -1 tbsp (mix with 2 tbsp water and keep aside)
  • Cardamom powder of 3 nos
  • Pepper powder 1 tsp
  • Salt to taste

  1. Place basil / thulasi leaves, ginger paste,water, cardamom powder along with pepper powder and salt in a microwave safe glass bowl.Micro high for 5 minutes.
  2. Remove it outside and add  corn powder(mixed in 2 tbsp water) to this boiled soup and stir well .
  3. Again micro high for  5 minutes and remove it outside and mix them well.
  4. Now again place the soup bowl in microwave and micro at minimum temp 180 W for 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Switch off and remove it..Cover with a lid and set it aside for 5 minutes and serve hot..
  6. Do not filter, drink as it is.It can be directly boiled on stove top  for 15 minutes and can be had.
Its a very hot yummy soup for cold / sore throat.This can be given to children as well  in very limited quantities with less pepper powder.
