Another blogging marathon

This year, I finally seem to have kicked off my tendency to let the blog take lo.....ng breaks. January started off with a blogging marathon, where I posted every day, and this month, me and some other blogger friends are doing a 7 day marathon. This time, the marathon is theme based and I have chosen to make Kid friendly recipes. The first dish that I will be sharing with you is a soup that kids will love for its colour and slight sweetness - Beetroot Soup.
This is also a great way to get veggies into a child's diet.

What you need:
Beetroot - 1 small
Onion - 1, chopped into large pieces
Ghee/butter - 1 tsp
Black pepper corns - 5 or 6
Salt

Heat ghee in a pan. Add the pepper corns and chopped onions to it and fry till the onions start to brown. Microwave the beet with skin for 7-8 minutes. Let it cool and then peel off the skin and dice it into large chunks. Transfer all the ingredients to a blender and blend till smooth.
Pour it back into the pan with a cup of water and let it boil.
Note: If you are serving this to adults, you might want to add some more spice in the form of more pepper corns or chillies.

Looks very healthy - This is a thick soup though correct? I guess I can add more spices if I want to make it more dilute...

Thank you all for the lovely words. Savitha, have made the correction.
Priya, yes, it is a thick soup, but you can make it thin if that's how you prefer your soups.
BB, yes, I did take the pic at night....and I have not yet developed the ability to click liquids well.
