Lemon Coriander Soup

Lemons are a rich source for Vitamin C and I was tired of just drinking lemon juice with warm water. So, with some little vegetables, lemon juice and lots of coriander, I made lemon coriander soup at home!


  • 2 Tsp Oil
  • 2 Garlic Cloves (finely chopped)
  • 1-inch Ginger (finely chopped)
  • 2 Tbsp Coriander Stem (finely chopped)
  • 1 Cup – White Onion, Carrot, Cabbage and Sweet Corn (all finely chopped)
  • 3 Cups Water
  • Salt to Taste
  • 1/2 Tsp Pepper Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Cornflour
  • 3 Tbsp Coriander (finely chopped)
  • 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice


Prep: 10 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes

  1. In a large kadhai, heat oil and sauté garlic and ginger. Then sauté onion and coriander stems for a minute.
  2. Now add carrot, cabbage and sweet corn. Sauté for a minute without overcooking. Add 2 ½ cup water, salt as per taste and pepper powder.
  3. Mix well and boil for 5 more minutes. Prepare the cornflour slurry by mixing cornflour and ¼ cup water. Mix well making sure there are no lumps.
  4. Pour the prepared slurry into the soup and mix well. Let it boil for 2 minutes.
