Roasted Bell Pepper and Chilly Soup……Happy Republic Day

Roasted Bell Pepper and Chilly Soup

Happy Republic Day.

Today when we are celebrating our 65th  Republic Day,  I salute all the  brave hearts. Their belief, courage had made this great day possible.  I am proud that I belongs to this  country.

Of lately, I have started making soup for myself and my blog. I love my warm bowl of soup but in our home nobody likes any soup, not even, when they are unwell.   But now, I have an  excuse to make them.

For me, nowadays soups have got a new definition, earlier it was limited to clear soup only, which includes boiling and then sieving.  But today, I am aware and  I can try varieties of soups.

I will soon start adding salads also, which are my other favorite and again other’s least favorite.

Bell Peppers

At this time of the year market is flooded with bell peppers, I try to add them as much as possible and I am lucky that my son loves them too, so I can sparingly add them with almost one or the other vegetable. For this recipe I again roasted my bell peppers on gas instead of oven which saves lots of time, without compromising on taste.
