This is home style, healthy and comforting soup recipe. The main ingredient is American sweet corns.

To spice it up I have used sliced green chilies. It gives just touch or hint of spicy taste.

Corn flour or cornstarch is added to make the soup thick. Other than these, only salt and pepper is used to season the soup.

This sweet corn soup has full of corn flavors. Because no other flavoring is added. Also I have used the water not vegetable stock. So the corn flavor is coming through the soup.

If you want to make the soup slightly creamy, you can add little milk or cream in it.

This is not the indo chinese style veg sweet corn soup where green onion or celery or other vegetables are added. This is simple sweet corn soup. I have adapted this recipe from a cookbook written in Gujarati language.

2) Drain the water and let it cool down to touch.
