Vegetable Soup

Recipe By : Shahnaz Quayyum

Take vagetable of your choice. I prefer cauliflower, carrot, chayote squash, onion, asparagus. Slice the vegetable thinly and separate the cauliflower florates. Now heat minimum amount of oil and sautee the vegetables. Add green chilli slice while on pan. When vegetables become tender then add corn flour water mix and coat them well. Then add salt to taste and water to your desire. When reach desired consistency turn off the heat. I did not add any tasting salt in it for health reason. If you want you can add. Enjoy, it is really good 🙂
