Italian cuisine has developed through centuries of social and political changes, with roots stretching to antiquity.  Italian cuisine is simple and a number of dishes having only four to eight ingredients.  They rely mostly on the quality of ingredients rather than elaborate preparation.
Noteworthy changes in Italian cuisine happened with the discovery of the New World and the introduction of potatoes, tomatoes, bell peppers and maize, which are now an integral part of this cuisine.  Italian cuisine is known for its regional diversity each with a distinct taste.  This cuisine today is probably one of the most popular in the world.

Ingredients for Mushroom Soup Recipe

  • Button mushroom 200 grams

  • Milk 1 1/4 cup

  • Bay leaves 2

  • Peppercorns 5-6

  • Cloves 4

  • Butter 2 tablespoons

  • Onions roughly chopped 2 medium

  • Refined flour (maida) 1 tablespoon

  • Fresh cream 3/4 cup

  • Salt to taste

  • White pepper powder 1/2 teaspoon

  • Nutmeg powder a pinch


Step 1

Slice four to five mushrooms and chop the remaining roughly. Boil the milk along with bay leaves, peppercorns and cloves. Strain and keep the milk hot.

Step 2

Heat butter in a pan. Add chopped onions and chopped mushrooms and cook till they are soft. Add refined flour and sauté till there is no raw flavour coming from flour, taking care that the flour does not get burnt.

Step 3

Pour the milk slowly and stir continuously to avoid lumps from forming. Cook for five minutes. Puree the mixture when it is a little cold.

Step 4

Do not puree it to a very fine consistency. The soup should have a nice texture. Bring it to a boil, correct consistency by adding more milk if required.

Step 5

Add the fresh cream (reserving a little for garnish), salt, white pepper powder and nutmeg powder. Stir well. Serve hot garnished with sliced mushrooms and reserved fresh cream.

Step 6

Chef's Tip

Step 7

Use raw sliced mushrooms for garnishing. However, if you wish, you may sauté them in a little butter or oil and then use.
