This simple, rustic, and delicious soup is a great way to use up leftover summer vegetables and has plenty of nutrients. The noodles are the key, and the soup itself is a lovely, refreshing, and comforting way to eat a simple but satisfying vegetarian meal.
It’s a bit of a cheat, but for those of you who are not vegetarians, this dish is basically a meat and vegetable meal in a bowl. You can get fancy with a few toppings, but the basic version is just as good.
Puranam (pronounced pa-rahn) is a soup from the Andhra region of the south, India. It is generally made with onion and garlic, and a little bit of tomato paste. The dish is cooked in a clay pot with a clay and stone vessel. It is then often served with rice, though the rice itself can be optional.
This recipe is pretty straightforward and is easy to make. I recommend you make it with your own ingredients.
The only other recipe I’ve found with a little more spice is this one, which is quite spicy. But I’ve made it with a lot of garlic and onion and it just went over so well. You can also add some red chili peppers, but the spice level is a little much.
The rice must be cooked long enough for it to get done soaking up all the spices, so cook it for about 1.5 hours. Add your vegetables at the end, and the coconut milk and water at the beginning. When the rice is done, it’s finished. The rice will get crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
And it only takes a few minutes to prepare, but it’s worth the wait. The recipe also has a few other suggestions to spice it up. You can add a tablespoon or two of minced garlic, for example. Or you can add a teaspoon of chili powder, or a tablespoon of ground cumin. Or a tablespoon of cilantro, or several sprigs of coriander.
What’s more interesting is the rice in this recipe. That’s because basava puranam is considered to be a popular and popular dish in India. It’s the rice that’s used in the popular dish kharif, which is a rice dish that has its roots in India. The idea is to make a variety of different types of rice to make a variety of different dishes. I think the dish basava puranam could easily be a basis for many of your own meals.
There are several traditional and modern varieties of rice that can be used in basava puranam. I recommend basava puranam with basava puranam, and karif rice with basava puranam. But you can also use basava puranam with other types of rice, such as jasmine rice or basmati rice.
As I mentioned earlier, basava puranam should be served with basava puranam, so the recipe will serve four or five dishes.
