Cold Cucumber Soup

Day 3 Week 1 of BM #52 - 

Summers in India reminds me of our childhood summers when we used to flock around the street hawker who had cucumber and mango slices with salt and Chili powder. Cucumbers were not a great favorite then but we relish them now :)

I was looking for spring/summer recipes online when I spotted an array of cold soups. I saw that this cold cucumber soup was very popular in many places and felt it is close to our very own Cucumber raitha in a different avatar.

But the taste beat our expectations. It got a A+++ rating from my family.

Ingredients - 

Yogurt, 3/4 cup
Cucumber, chopped 1 cup
*Mint leaves fresh, chopped 3 Tbsp 
Coriander leaves few
Cumin Powder 1/4 tsp
Lime/Lemon Juice as needed
Salt and Pepper as needed

I used 1 tsp of dried mint and 1/4 tsp of store bought mint chutney.


Cold Cucumber Soup

Method Of Preparation -


Blend all the ingredients except salt, pepper and lime juice into a smooth mixture.

Add salt, pepper and lime juice as needed and refrigerate atleast for an hour for the flavors to blend in.

Serve it cold on a hot day. 

Preparation Time 10 min + Cooling Time  hour
Makes approx 1 cup
