MAKING SOY SAUCE SLURRY

  • Take a cup and add soy sauce + All purpose flour + 1/4 cup water to it. Stir it with a fork or small whisk. Make sure that there are no lumps left in the slurry. Set aside till ready to use. When ready to use, whisk again and add. 

COOKING ON SAUTE MODE IN INSTANT POT

  • Place the inner pot inside the Instant Pot. Plug it in. SWITCH ON THE SAUTE MODE and wait till the screen displays HOT.
  • Now add OIL to the inner pot. Wait for 2 seconds and then add Red Onions + Garlic + Carrots + White parts of the Green Onions. Saute for 2 minutes.
  • Now add Corn Kernels + Cream of Corn + Salt + Pepper.  Give a good stir.
  • Add 4 cups Water + Soy Sauce Slurry to the inner pot. Give it a good stir.  If you are adding Hot sauce or chili paste then you add it now. Cancel the SAUTE MODE.

COOKING ON PRESSURE COOK / MANUAL MODE

  • Close the Lid of the IP. Set the FLoating valve to SEALING. Press the Manual Mode / Pressure Cook Mode and set it for 2 MINUTES on MORE + High Pressure.
  • Once the timer goes off, you can either follow QPR if you are in hurry. OR you can follow NPR if you set it for cooking before leaving for work or a long day. It doesn't matter.
  • IMPORTANT - When you will open the lid, the soup will be bit clouded in appearance. NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT IT. Just take a ladle or serving spoon. and Give it a good stir. It will dissolve the cloudy look and is good to go.
  • Place the soup in soup bowls and garnish with Green part of the scallions. Serve it warm.

OIL FREE VERSION

  • You can make this soup oil-free too. Just skip the step of adding the oil and sauteeing the ingredients. Instead, dump all the ingredients together and Cook on Manual Mode for 2 minutes.

STOVE TOP INSTRUCTIONS

  • Heat oil in a saucepan and follow the same steps as mentioned in the SAUTE MODE above. Once you follow all the steps in saute mode, add water + soy sauce slurry. Cover the pan with lid, bring it to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes. Serve it warm.

NOTES

  • This recipe can be easily doubled.
  • The soup can be made in a big batch and be frozen in freezer-friendly containers. You may store in single portions. When ready to eat, just empty the portion in microwave safe bowl or cup and heat for 2 minutes and eat.
  • If you are making it for the family with kids, skip adding hot sauce while cooking. You can serve the hot sauce on the side for whoever wants to add it. 
  • Though this soup uses only a few vegetables, but you can add vegetables of your choice and enrich with the protein of your choice as well.
