Corn starch ....................... 2 tsps
Crushed black pepper ...... 2 -3 pinches

1. Grind the corn with 1 cup of water to a slightly coarser texture.
2. In a pot take 1 cup of water and add moringa leaves and little salt.
3. Boil for few minutes.
4. Add the ground corn paste to it.
5. Keep stirring intermittently.
6. Now dilute the corn starch with water and add it to the soup.
7. Add salt to taste and one pinch of black pepper saving the rest for garnishing.
8. Check salt and adjust the consistency of the soup to your liking.
9. Serve it into individual bowls and sprinkle little black pepper and cumin powder on top.
