Carrot, Coriander Stalks & Barley Soup

Its bit windy and rainy with loads of climatic changes here, we are almost in summer here, but still the climate is not ready to bring us the bright sun...Yesterday its was rainy and cold here, we guys wanted to have a bowl of comforting soup, my hubby was in front of the TV to watch France-Mexico football match and he doesnt want to come to dinning table to enjoy our dinner, so i wanted to make some soups, so that he can enjoy in front of the TV.. Making soup for dinner is quite a routine for me and this time i wanted to prepare something different, filling, wholesome and also at the same time healthy, finally i prepared this thick soup with carrots chunks, coriander stalks and barleymeal...This soup tastes awesome, with mild coriander flavour and filling soup coz of barleymeal i used for making out the soup instead of potatoes i usually go for the soup...

Carrot, Coriander & Barley Soup

2cups Carrot (cubed)
1cup Coriander stalks(chopped)
1/4cup Barley meal (just ground the whole barley as coarse powder)
1tbsp Olive oil
1no Onion (chopped)
2cups Vegetable stock or water
1/4cup Cooked whole barley
Salt
Pepper powder

Heat the olive oil in a pressure cooker, add immediately the chopped onions, saute until the onions turns transculent, now add the cubed carrots, saute for few minutes..add the chopped coriander stalks, barley meal, give a stir, add the vegetable stock, salt and pepper powder, close the pressure cooker and cook upto three whistles..Once the pressure get released, blend the cooked veggies with a hand blender..

Serve warm topped with cooked whole barley..enjoy!
