There is a routine in my family. Whenever I make indo-chinese meal, after few days we enjoy this creamy celery soup.

I buy a bunch of celery to add into any chinese dish. In that we need very little amount of celery and I am left with almost whole bunch. And to use that I make this soup.

The creamy texture is coming from potato. This is the healthier option than adding the heavy cream.

Also I have added a touch of milk at the end which adds more creaminess.

I have cooked finely chopped celery till they crisp up slightly and added that as a topping. This adds nice texture and bite to the creamy soup. You can skip this step, but I highly recommend.
