Corn Chowder Soup

February 16, 2018

Winter is now playing hide and seek. It will be gone before we realize. Make this amazing corn chowder soup before winter bids a complete adieu. 

I make Corn chowder soup a few times during winters but somehow never got down to blogging it. 

It's a sumptuous soup which I enjoy piping hot with a tsp of chili oil and bread by the side. 

I have used frozen corn. Thaw it before you measure a cup. You can also use fresh corn if it's available. In that case microwave it for 2 minutes. 

Generally roux is used in corn chowder soup but I never felt the need to use it. If you want to use it then add a tbsp of flour after sautéing bell peppers and Zucchini. Saute for a minute and then proceed as per the recipe.
