THAI ASPARAGUS MINI PRAWN SOUP

Soups are the best appetizer to have specially on cold days or for the people who down with cold. I prepared this soup when I was in US. I was very much interested using asparagus when I see them in grocery shop in stalks and thats somthing news that I didn't ever found in India. I wanted to know how it taste. So gave a try first with making a soup under ''Thai Cuisine'' which I would like to dye for. I used mini prawns as a best combo with asparagus and gave it a nice fresh flavour of bazil leaves which has turned into hearty, perfect and filling soup.



INGREDIENTS

1 Onion.

2 Asparagus.

Handful of Mini prawns.

1 tbps Thai curry paste.

2 Cups of Vegetable or Fish stock.

2 tbsp Chopped Garlic.

Handful of Chopped Bazil leaves.

1 tsp Butter.

1 tsp Fish sause.

Salt and pepper to taste.

Method.

Clean and wash the asparagus and cut them into medium size of 3 to 4 inch long. Heat butter in a kadai. Add diced onions, garlic and asparagus with a pinch of salt. Saute for 2 to 3 min till they are half cooked. Add thai paste and pour in the stock and fish sause. At the time of boiling drop the mini prawns. Cover with a lid and sim for 1 min. Season with pepper and garnish with fresh chopped bazil leaves.


Enjoy!!
