Urulai Kizhangu Kanji - Potato And Leek Soup

 I wondered how a Urulai Kizhangu Kanji would taste, while my daughter-in-law started preparing Potato and Leek soup for dinner. I loved the aroma when the soup arrived at the dinner table. The easy to make delicious soup is a nourishing and comforting meal by itself. I was very happy to eat potatoes in a healthy way.


Red Potatoes - 250 gms
Leek ( Chopped ) - 2 cups
Onion ( Sliced ) - 1
Garlic - 2 pearls
Olive oil or Butter - 2 tbsps
Celery / Coriander leaves / dill- for garnishing 
Salt - 1 tsp
Crushed pepper - 1 tsp


1. Thoroughly wash and chop the  potatoes into big chunks.

2. Wash and chop the leek and onion into thin slices. 
3. Chop the garlic into small pieces.
4. Heat oil / melt the butter in a vessel and add  garlic, sliced onion and leek.

5. Saute till it emanates a very pleasant aroma.
6. Stir in the chopped potatoes.
7. Cover the vegetables with water and cook on medium flame till the potato is cooked.

8. Switch off the flame and blend the vegetables till creamy using a hand blender.
9. Add more water or vegetable stock if the soup is too thick.
10. Simmer the soup till it is about to boil over.
11. Mix in salt and crushed pepper and garnish with celery / coriander leaves / dill.

Enjoy a bowlful of the hot and delicious Urulai Kizhangu Kanji / Potato And Leek Soup with a  soup stick or a slice of crisp bread.
