I bet you remember the time, when I introduced you to the Drumstick vegetable! No, you don’t remember?! Did you just join us here recently or maybe you missed the post? Well, then I suggest you check out some Drumstick facts and information by clicking on this link before you read any further here. I may suggest as well to subscribe (Its Free!) to the Masala Herb feed so that you get it into your inbox, in case you had missed the post back then, so that, that won’t happen again! =P
What have I come up with this time, you may wonder? Well,… I thought it was about time to share my Spiced Drumstick Potato Soup. It’s nutritious, healthy and nutritious again and it’s going to warm up your bones if you live in the Northern Hemisphere. We are experiencing the October heat in Goa, so I decided to cook, cool and indulge it like that. Works out as well!
Why am I cooking more with spices these days? Simple as it may seem, spices are good for our systems. I am not speaking of a huge load of red chillies and the resulting stomach problems, that many foreigners go through while visiting India, I am speaking of a balanced spiced diet, a way to incorporate a reasonable amount of different type of spices, such as Cinnamon, Turmeric, Coriander, Nutmeg and so on. Anyway I can’t eat food dishes that are too hot, that they make me want to cut out my tongue! Believe me I wouldn’t post these type of dishes, and my readers will know that and nod their head in approvement, right?
Do you know Paracelsuse’s quote “The dose makes the Poison“? This quote has been spooking in my mind since we learned about the brilliant physician and alchemist of the Renaissance in college time. What he meant was, that any substance in this world can be poison to us if used in extremes. In our case here, it is the high intake of hot spices. Alright, the Indians are used to it from birth and I have seen parents feeding babies the same spicy curry as they eat, so more or less their blood is spice itself. In this case it doesn’t apply that much to them, but obviously if they eat only kashmiri chillies, it might kill them as well with time. The same applies with other foods, as for example chocolate, cheese and even simple water or oxygen. The concentration of the dose is important in general in our life!
I follow the dosage rule in my cooking, a balanced intake of food is the key to a healthy being! Follow this rule and you will see your health improve.
I am not going to go any deeper into the Drumstick vegetable Nutrition explanation since I had explained the nutritious values here before. This vegetable is one of my favorite Indian Veggies, so naturally with time I came up with some other recipes and more are about to come in the future. To recreate the soup just follow the step by step instructions with the pictures and you will have your own Spiced Drumstick Potato Soup in a jiffy.
