Cucumber Soup

We had tried a Cucumber soup a couple of years ago (posted here), and had almost forgotten about it. Looked at the post last night and coincidentally, we had all required ingredients at home as mentioned in that recipe. There – we tried it again. turned out great.

. Cucumber – 1 medium size
. Yogurt/butter milk – 1 cup
. Onions – 2 small ones
. black pepper – powdered – half teaspoon
. Salt – for taste
. Bread slices – 2
. coriander leaves – chopped – 1 tbl spoon
. ginger – 1 tsp

Preparation Steps:
Peel off the cucumber, cut into slices. Cut Onions to smaller size. Mix cucumber, onions, powdered black pepper and salt in a blender and grind them to the paste. Now add yogurt (or buttermilk) and mix well. If you prefer to this to be chilled, place it in refrigerator for few minutes/hours as appropriate

Toast the bread slices either in a bread toaster or on a skillet. Break the bread slices into small pieces. Take out the mix bowl from the refrigerator and add the chopped coriander leaves.

Pour the soup into the smaller bowls and top it off with the bread crumbs.

yum yum!
