Creamy Fish Soup recipe / How to make Meen Soup at home / Winter recipes

Creamy fish soup is a delicious and perfect non-vegetarian soup for dinner, because of its creamy, little spicy and aromatic flavor. Creamy fish soup can be prepared in just 10 mins if you have you fish stock ready, else it would take 20 mins to prepare. In tamil we call it as “Meen soup”, Also this meen soup is prepared with basic ingredients available in all Indian kitchens.

Soups are most comforting dish during winters and sick times. I am not a soup person, but there are times when I like to have soup paired with some bread toast. This fish soup / meen soup is my long wait recipe that I wanted to try at home, I have used 2 to 3 pieces of fish and then it was the pieces from head and bones. Usually I add fish head along with 1 or 2 tail pieces to the curry, but rest of the pieces would be fried, as our family likes to have fish fry more than the fish in curry. This Creamy fish soup is liked by the whole family and been a very comforting food for our sore throat, also perfect for winter and so glad to enroll this to my winter recipes.
