Vegetable Soup with Rice Starch

Rice_Starch_Vegetable_Soup_1 Here is a vegetable soup using rice starch. Usually I cook rice in pressure cooker and for a change I cooked it in a pan. I did not want to drain and waste the rice starch (excess water that is left while boiling rice).  We call this rice starch as Kanji in Tamil.

In my childhood I used to drink this rice starch or kanji with salt. This contains most of the rice nutrients. I prepared a simple soup with rice starch that was so tasty, filling and energetic to me. This contains many vegetables in addition to rice starch.

Cooking time: 30 minutes


  • Finely chopped vegetables carrot, cabbage, beans and fresh peas – 5 cup
  • Rice starch or kanji – 5 cup
  • Onion chopped – 1 no
  • Green chilli cut in to big pieces – 2 no
  • Ginger chopped – 1 table spoon
  • Garlic chopped – 1 table spoon
  • Black pepper powder – 1 tea spoon (adjust as per your taste)
  • Corn flour – 1 table spoon
  • Milk – 2 table spoon
  • Coriander leaves – few
  • Low fat butter – 1 table spoon
  • Salt – as per taste
