Creamy vegan sweet corn soup with coconut milk

Who doesn’t like sweet corn? I guess very less hands up! I like it in any form. Be it Sweet corn masala or Sweet corn salad or crispy sweet corn or just boiled buttery sweet corn. Here is a recipe for creamy sweet corn soup with coconut milk which makes it vegan. It is very tasty and creamy with the flavours of garlic and choice of herb. I used fresh Maruga (Davana/ Marjoram/ Origanum majorana) in making, where as you can choose any herb of choice.

  • If you like to add ghee/ butter, then fry minced garlic with it and add it to the soup.
