Ukha soup ( A Light Fish Soup)

Ukha soup is a light fish soup. It is very healthy and refreshing. This soup can be prepared with any of your choice of vegetable. I have used my own ingredients in such a way that it gives a nice twist of flavor to my soup. And this is my desi Ukha soup.

Ingredients :

1. Fish fillet- 3
2. Onion- 1
3. Salt to taste
4. Black pepper powder- 3/4 tsp
5. Olive oil- 1 tsp
6. Bay leaf- 2
7. Spring onion- 2 large tbs
8. Carrot- 1
9. Garlic clove- 3
10. Clove- 2
11. Cinnamon- 1
12. Potato- 1
13. Sweet corn- 2 tbs
14. Vinegar- 1 tbs

Procedure :

First heat 1 tsp oil in a pan and add cloves, cinnamon and bay leaf. Let them fry until the bay leaf leaves a nice aroma. Add one fish fillet to the oil and fry for a few seconds. Add 2 cups of water and the chopped garlic, sweet corn, spring onion, carrot. Break the fish fillet that has already been added. Peel the onion and prick it with a fork and add it to the pan. Add salt and pepper. Cover the pan and cook it on high till the water starts boiling. Add the potatoes and cover again. Cook until the potatoes are done. Add 1 tbs vinegar and adjust salt level. Add the remaining fish fillets and cook the pan covered for 3 to 4 minutes.Do not over cook the fish.

When it is done, take the soup in a bowl. Throw away the bay leaf, cloves, cinnamon and onion. Place one slice of lemon on top of it. and sprinkle some more pepper powder.
