Apple and Potato Soup

Apple and Potato??? Yup you read it right! I ate (do you eat or drink soup? Well, whatever...) this soup in the ITC Eden Pavilion at Kolkata... and as usual modified it to taste better :)

It is incredibly simple to make and tastes otherworldly...

5 medium sized sweet apples, peeled, cored and cut into medium sized chunks
3 small potatoes or 2 and a half medium sized potatoes which are cut into medium sized chunks, don't peel the skin and remember to wash and scrub them well before using.

We are using a little less than 1/2 the number of potatoes compared to apples.

2 cloves of garlic crushed
Few basil leaves
Olive Oil
A small piece of cheese grated
3 small cinnamon sticks
Salt to taste

In a pressure cooker, heat up a generous amount (3-5 tablespoons) of Olive oil and put in a tablespoon of butter (optional). add the garlic and cook till brown, add the basil leaves, stir for a minute. Add the salt.

Add potatoes and cook for about 3-4 minutes. Then add the apple pieces and cook for another few minutes. Add the cinnamon sticks. Add the cheese. Add water to cover the entire mixture. Pressure cook for 3-4 whistles. Remove from heat and put aside.

Allow the cooker to stand for about 10-15 minutes. Then remove the whistle and carefully open the cooker. Fish out the cinnamon sticks. and whirrr the whole mixture to a smooth consistency.

Garnish with a sprig of Parsley and serve piping hot. It's absolutely delicious. You don't need anything at all to go with it!
