spring onion soup

Spring onion soup recipe – this is again one of those easy soup recipes. When I make soups at home, we generally prefer pureed and slightly thick soups rather than thin clear soups.

Here in this soup, apart from spring onions i have used one potato to thicken the soup. The soup is again made with minimal ingredients so as to bring out the best of spring onions.

  1. Hi Dasanna … I keep trying your recipes always. They are so perfect and in detail explanation of recipes makes me hassle free cooking.
    Thanks to you to make cooking easier.
    May I know which soya sauce is good? Bcz what we get in market is all synthetic flavours .

    • thanks manjula. buy soy sauce which is fermented naturally. it will be mentioned on the bottle if its fermented naturally. it will contain 3 to 4 ingredients like soybean, water, salt or wheat/rice. i have used kikkoman brand and it is good. currently, i am using thats asia brand and this is good as well.

  2. Instead of potato any vegetable and green garlic ginger pl guide

    • potato is added as a thickening agent in the soup. you can use instead 1 to 2 tablespoons corn flour (corn starch) or besan to thicken. you can use green garlic and ginger also.

  3. can i make this in the pressure cooker?

    • yes you can use a pressure cooker. add less water in a pressure cooker. so you can add 2 to 2.5 cups water.

  4. Hello mam,
    Which type of olive oil is good for making soup recipes?5 stars

    • you could use normal olive oil suvidha hope this help’s you.

      • Means that can be use for Indian dishes also….

        • yes regular olive oil can be used for indian food. but just light sauteing and steaming. do not use for deep frying or high flame stir frying. and extra virgin olive oil should be used only for salad dressing or raw dips.

        • yes suvidha 🙂 thankyou

  5. Made it today and was excellent thanks. I chopped the onions and potato quite small and didn’t blend as prefer soup with bits in and turned out great delicate flavour soup.5 stars

    • thanks steve for letting us know. even finely chopped onions and potatoes are good to go in the recipe 🙂

  6. Satisfying, tasty, very easy to make, and a reasonable substitute for leek and potato soup, since I can’t reliably get leeks where I live, but green onions are abundant. Will try pakoras next.5 stars

    • thankyou patricia glad you liked the soup 🙂 surely try pakoras and let us know how they were?

  7. Great recipe. Some times I add a tsp or two of curry powder to it to give it a bit of a kick.

    • thanks mister for sharing your feedback.

  10. Love your recipes, Dassana! I wanted to make a request – can you please post a recipe for Mulligatawny soup? I would love that so much! I have been looking around and cannot find a good one!4 stars

    • thanks mina. a few readers have requested for mulligatawny soup. i will add the recipe during the winters, once the diwali season gets over.

  11. Liked the palak soup receipe. Though avoiding the gram flour is a better idea n even straining the soup thru a big sieve gv it more finess

    • gram flour is used to thicken the palak soup. thanks for the suggestion using the sieve.

  12. I tried the recipe as written. It came out very well and my sons just loved it. Thks dassana.
