Chilled Spicy Green Grape Soup

Sunday, May 29, 2011

Green Grpaes are another fruit which can be used in soups and also give the soup a pleasing colour and distinctive taste. This soup is also for summer. To give it the green colour and taste, roasted green bell pepper(capsicum), cucumber and green chilly have been used. Pictures of how to roast capsicum on open flame are shown here for those who do not have an oven or just don't know how to do it!

Serves two.

























































Ingredients Quantity
Green Grapes 1 cup or more
Green Capsicum (Bell Pepper) 1 medium
Green Chilly ½ chilly
Chopped Garlic (Optional) 1 tsp
Chopped Cucumber 1 cup
Chopped Cilantro 1 tbsp
Black Pepper Powder 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Water 2 cups or more


Method

  1. Take a fork and pierce it into the capsicum which has been greased and put it over an open flame and roast it on all sides as shown in the video below. When done remove from the flame and cool it so that the skin peels off easily.

  2. After it cools peel the skin and remove the seeds and chop it into big pieces.
  3. Take a blender jar and add, grapes, garlic, green chilly, capsicum, cucumber, pepper powder, salt and water and blend it well into a smooth consistency.

  4. Strain the soup and if more water is required it can be added. Chill this in the refrigerator for half an hour and serve it in a soup bowl garnished with chopped coriander leaves.
