Tried classic Potato Soup with Mushrooms on a mild spiced rice. We had a great time yesterday for dinner with this yum soup. Mushrooms in Potato Soup recipe is simple, healthy, nutritious and delicious. Mushrooms In Potato Soup goes well with pasta, mild pilaf Or pulao, rice. It can also be eaten as a soup Or stew. The best part is its flour free, egg less and sugar free soup.
Firstly I thought I will make Mushrooms In Cream. However later I changed my mind as I wanted a thick base for my soup. So I used potatoes which gave me the desired consistency for my soup.

Yesterday we had a wholesome meal. We ate Baked Vegetables in White Sauce, Mushrooms In Potato Soup and Maggi Cube Rice which is hubby’s favorite rice. He loved all of them. Thinking what to make tonight?
I can listen to the cuckoo near my window calling rain. Even other birds are chirping. It’s nice to hear them sometimes. Wish rains listen to them and shower soon!
I haven’t uploaded step by step as the soup is easy and the instructions are simple to understand 🙂
