I am fortunate enough to experiment with this rare tuber for Roots and Tubers 2020 calendar project—by Sahaja Samrudha noble cause of supporting farmers and introducing all the nutritious and most ignored products to the community at large.
Who doesn’t love soup? That too in winter months. This Air Potato onion soup recipe is earthy, delicious, healthy and soothing to our souls.
It uses simple everyday ingredients. In place of Air potato, one can use our regular potato. It doesn’t use fresh cream, so it is excellent for people with a sensitive gut. It is easily adaptable to make vegetarian or vegan.
If you are new to the usage of Air potato, please go through my detailed description regarding the aerial tuber, how to cook etc., in “Understanding the roots and tubers.” And go down until Tubers, and you would find the Air potato under Number 8, and it is HERE.
