Green Bell Pepper Soup

The weather is cold in Bangalore...well not that cold.....but cold enough....So one of the days when the sky looked as it would rain and the wind had that chill, what better time to have a soup for the night right?! Thus the green capsicum or the bell pepper soup came to my mind. I had the same thing when Seema Chechi (my Aunt) made it for dinner a few months back at her home.So I thought why not attempt the same thing.

Green Bell Pepper - 4, finely chopped
Onion- 1 large, finely chopped
Garlic - 3 cloves, minced
Chicken Stock or Vegetables Stock - 4 cups
Cream - 1/4 cup
Lime Juice - 1tbs
Crushed Black Pepper to taste
Flour (Maida) - 1 tbs

Into a frying pan, pour in about 2tbs of oil or butter. Saute the garlic and chopped onion till transparent. Then tip in the green capsicum till it becomes soft. Add in the maida and saute it to remove the rawness. Pour in the stock and bring the mixture to a simmer. Then pour the mixture into the blender and blend to a smooth consistency. Pour back this puree into a pot and allow to simmer for about 10 minutes. Add in the cream and lime juice and continue to simmer for another 5 minutes. Add the crushed black pepper to taste. Add salt if required and serve warm with some garlic buns.
