Corn Soup

Have a blessed Ramadan everyone :) 
This chicken corn soup would be wonderful to serve when we are breaking fast.

1 1/2 cups chicken without bones
3 to 4 cups water
1/2 tsp chilie powder
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp cumin ground
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp oil
1/2 cup white part of leeks or onions
1/2 cup celery chopped 
1 can cream style corn
1/2 cup carrots
pepper to taste

Boil the chicken with the water, chilie powder, salt, turmeric, cumin and leave it aside. 
Heat oil and saute the onions or the white part of leeks and celery . Then add the boiled chicken with the water and corn and let it cook until all the flavours blend. Add the carrots towards the end and simmer the soup till the carrots are cooked to taste. Adjust salt and pepper to taste and serve hot.
I served this flavourful filling soup in this oval casserole dish that can be bought online from Trudeau. I like that the dish comes with a lid. I like the strong, but lightweight feel of this casserole dish that can hold up to 3.1QT of content. This dish can be placed in the oven, freezer and be washed by hand or dishwasher.
