Soups are easiest thing you can cook in pressure cooker. My aunt would make soup for her toddler in pressure cooker which would save her time as well.

If you and your family want to have something light for evening, you can make soups which are healthy, quick and easy to make. Soups like drumstick soup are perfect. This fabulous drumstick soup recipe with the strong aroma and flavour of drumstick, is surprisingly easy to make because it bypasses the cumbersome process of peeling the drumstick. In this innovative procedure, the drumstick is sautéed in butter along with the other ingredients, cooked, blended and then strained, so the saijan ki phalli soup benefits from the its strong essence without going through the long peeling process.

Half a cup of milk helps to balance the overwhelming flavour of the veg drumstick soup and to improve its texture too, while a dash of pepper acts as the classic and final stroke in this masterpiece.
