Kalan Soup / Chennai Soup Stall Mushroom Soup Recipe / காளான் சூப்


Kalan Soup / Chennai Soup Stall Mushroom Soup Recipe /  காளான் சூப்

        If you are from Chennai, You never missed this yummy soup from soup stall vander. When Valli gave the theme as street food, I had list of recipes to try  but end up with some quick and yummy recipe which took me back to my Chennai life. Really missing those days :(

Kalan/ Mushroom soup is very popular road side dish in Chennai.  When I searched for original road side shop soup recipe in internet, I end up with restaurant style soup recipes where mushrooms are sautéed, pureed and mixed with cream to get rich flavor and creamy texture.  But the roadside mushroom soup is  more like clear soup where corn flour is add to thicken the soup. 
  
  To test my taste buds, I tried with the ingredients which I found and tasted in roadside shop soup which I tasted 5 years before. And my taste buds test was approved with exact taste and texture which I got from my soup. Yeah I very happy with the outcome and it tasted awesome in very bite of corn flakes and mushrooms and it took back to my Chennai days.. Try this at your home and sure you guys will admit what I am saying here.

 ( Note: I believe commercially they use ajinomoto in their recipes to enhance the taste. But I avoided and didn't find any difference of taste in my soup.)

the corn flake garnish is definitely a truly unique Indian garnish - I wonder how it will taste with the soup?
