VEGETABLE BROTH

HOME MADE VEGETABLE STOCK

Vegetable stock | broth which i wanted to try at home for a long time. When i wanted to make a Mexican Rice at home influenced by the one which we had restaurant here , the google search for most of the Vegetarian  Mexican rice includes Vegetarian broth | Stock. So i wanted to try this at home. I made this with the regular veggies which we use at home.
Before making this ensure that the vegetables should be fresh. Because i have seen in many cook books they use the left over veggies which will not give a nice flavor to the stock. When i made vegetable stock yesterday my house was filled with fantastic aroma and here comes the recipe of how to make vegetable stock at home.

  • After 45 minutes to 1 hour switch off the flame and when it slightly cooks down and you can handle the stock pot, strain the mixture and keep the water aside.
  • Discard the veggies as all the goodness of the veggies are trasferred to the water.

Notes:

  • Normally celery, spring onions, leak are added to the stock. though i get these easily here i wanted to try out with the veggies which we use on daily basis.
  • A bay leaf can be added to the stock while boiling to enhance the flavor.
  • Do not boil the vegetables for more than an hour else the stock will not be flavorful.
  • Freeze it once it is completely cool.
  • While freezing the cubes, pour the stock in ice cube tray and once it is set, take out and put them in zip lock cover and freeze them.
  • Take out the required portion when you want. Do not re freeze once defrosted.

I watched this in podhigai tv some months ago being cooked by the menurani Chellam. it makes a lot more flavour filled variety rice if you add broth.
This is a keeper recipe you have shared here.
