Carrot and Kohlrabi soup

As promised I am including other recipes apart from Iyengar food. This one is definitely among that group and will surely attract kids.
Like how we appreciate and crave for good looking food, children are more choosy when it comes to food. So its all the more important to make their food look good and taste good.

Recently when my inlaws visited me , my father-in-law had been to veggie shopping. Whenever he goes, me and my mother-in-law know for sure that the whole of subzi mandi(veggie market) will be at home:-). Like I said, he had got 2 bunches of kohlrabi(navilkosu in kannada and ganth gobi in hindi). I used one bunch while they were here. I made akki rotti with some more yesterday. Today i thought I will make soup with carrot and the remaining kohlrabi. Its amazing for this winter. One more thing about vegetable soups are that they are really fast to make and very tasty.

Ingredients: (Serves 4)

Kohlrabi (chopped)- 1
Carrot (chopped)-1 big one
Salt to taste
Pepper- freshly ground (2tspns)

1. Boil carrot and kohlrabi together in water with little salt.
2. Once its cooked , cool it and blend it to a puree. Thin it with 2 cups of water.
3. Place it again for heating and bring it to one boil. Check for salt and add freshly ground pepper.
4. Add butter and mix well.
5. For garnishing sprinkle some bread crumbs, pepper and serve hot
with bun or toasted bread.
