Carrot & Potato Soup


This is a yummy soup that can be enjoyed in the cold weather. This is one of my mom’s collections. The original recipe is by Fifie Mendonca.

Note: This recipe is tagged as a toddler friendly recipe, but I would recommend you to adjust the salt and spice level according to your toddler’s taste


  • Carrot, medium sized – 1
  • Potato, medium sized – 1
  • Tomato, medium – 1/2
  • Coarsely powdered cashewnuts – 2 tbsp
  • Onion, medium – 1/4
  • Butter – 1 tbsp
  • Water – 4 cups
  • Salt and pepper – to taste


  • Peel and grate the carrot and potato
  • Boil the tomatoes for a couple of minutes and puree the tomato
  • Grind the onion to a fine paste
  • In a pan, add the butter and fry the onion paste till it turns light brown
  • Add the grated carrot and potato and fry until the raw smell disappears
  • Mix in the tomato puree and the powdered cashewnuts
  • Pour in the water and add the pepper powder and salt
  • Pressure cook for 5 to 10 minutes
  • Pour out the delicious soup into individual bowls and garnish with fresh mint leaves

Enjoy and warm up with the soup 🙂
