Karuni Kayo Raghavendra – ಕರುಣಿ ಕಾಯೋ ರಾಘವೇಂದ್ರ Lyrics and Audio

I had written about this very famous song we used to listen my parents sing and we ourselves used to sing this for all these years. I had posted about this song on June 22nd 2010, close to 9 years back. Read about the post here:
Karuni Kayo Raghavendra – ಕರುಣಿ ಕಾಯೋ ರಾಘವೇಂದ್ರ

I had been searching for the lyrics for a long long time and never found it. Over the past three weeks since I was on vacation, I used to recite this song so many times. I talked to my mom today morning as well and she said there was no such song and we just used to sing it. I had also blogged about the first paragraph in my blog (Link above), and no one could find the lyrics.

The past three days, I kept singing this in my dream constantly. Today, I decided to write down the lyrics I was singing and look how amazingly the song came out. I thought it was just a dream, but when I kept getting the same dream and repeating the lyrics, I decided to write it down finally. I recorded the song, and posted it on youtube.

 

I know the song has no ankitha, shouldn’t be sung is what everyone says. For me, this is the most dearest song of my beloved Rayaru. It brings tears to me when I sing this. I am posting it so I can keep track of it. Hope you all understand my sentiments.

The lyrics in English are listed below. I will translate in Kannada also soon.

Butternut Squash Sweet Potato Corn Soup

You can make soup and many other recipes in minutes if you own an Instant Pot(IP). My daughter loved it so much, she brought a smaller size of the same. I make everything in the IP. From sweet Pongal, toKhara pongee, to bisibele bath, and to soup, I use the IP for almost all of my cooking.

I had a bag of frozen butternut squash, sweet potatoes and several boxes of frozen corn. I wanted to make something warm, not too spicy, and a dish with no onion or garlic.

This soup was super delicious and very filling.

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag of frozen butternut squash
  • 1 large sweet potato – washed, peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 bag of frozen sweet corn
  • 1 tsp – cumin powder
  • 1/2 inch ginger finely grated
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 tsp crushed black pepper
  • 3/4 cup – Almond milk(optional)
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp Olive oil

Method:

  • Turn on the IP to sauté, add oil crushed red pepper
  • Add sweet potatoes and fry for 2 minutes
  • Add frozen squash and corn and fry again.
  • Now add cumin powder, grated ginger and mix well.
  • Add salt, water to completely cover the vegetables
  • Turn the IP to soup setting, and the time was 30 minutes
  • Once the vegetables are cooked, blend with a immersion blender
  • If you don’t have one, you can blend in your mixer once the soup is cool
  • Next, add almond milk ( optional) and bring to a slow boil
  • Serve the soup with some crushed black pepper and some olive oil
