Sweet Corn Vegetable Soup

Sweet corn soup is one of our favorite soups to order at an Indian restaurant. Thick and creamy with a healthy dose of vegetables it is a great way to start a meal. It is an Indian Chinese soup recipe which can be easily made at home using fresh or canned corn and few other ingredients.

I decided to make this at home for an Indo Chinese style potluck dinner. I received guidance from her about the procedure and she suggested using cream style canned corn. Cream style corn has a good amount of crushed corn and it helped in bringing in the right taste and the desired creamy consistency. 

Just a quick note, since I had put in some soy sauce and ketchup the color has turned pale yellow otherwise it was white to begin with.

Adapted from: Show Me the Curry 


  • 1 can cream style corn
  • 1 can vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp ginger (grated)
  • 1 tsp garlic (minced)
  • ¼ cup carrot (finely chopped)
  • ¼ cup celery (finely chopped)
  • 2 Tbsp onions (chopped)
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper powder (taste)
  • 2 tsp corn starch (mixed with ¼ cup water)
  • 2 green onions (chopped diagonally including the whites) 


  • Heat oil in a medium saucepan (preferable non-stick) and then add the ginger and garlic and cook until it turns light brown.
  • Add the chopped onion and cook until it turns translucent.
  • Add the celery and carrots, little salt and sauté for 2 minutes until the carrot cooks a bit.
  • Now open the cream style corn can and add this to the mixture. Mix and add salt and pepper.
  • Note: Clean the can with little water and scrape any corn paste add the contents to this mixture.
  • Add the vegetable stock, mix well and bring it to a boil.
  • Meanwhile in a small cup make a paste of corn starch and water with no lumps.
  • Add this to the soup and cook again.
  • Garnish with spring onions (green part) and serve hot.

    This corn soup is just awesome. I am an amateur in the field of cooking. I have been cooking reading from blogs!! I am planning to surprise my sister by doing this for her. I just have a doubt.. What is meant by vegetable broth??
    I have ordered all the ingredients from http://qusec.in/ sitting at office and this is the one thing I am not getting.
