Cool Cucumber Turns Hot!!

Ah!! Cucumbers love it any time. Probably u opt me cucumbers or have a simple lunch/dinner we would prefer cucumbers first. Anything with cucumber would do for us. Those were the days of school where I never missed cucumber and tomatoes in my lunch box. A saaru (rasam), sheeth (white rice), cucumber salad or slices was my perfect lunch. If I never had them in my lunch OMG I used to come home and used to start telling ‘Amma aji itya taushe na?’ and my face would fluff. Anu used to make it sure he gets cucumber ne time he went to market. And in school everybody knew what would be in my lunch box. Miss those cool days. Once I entered college NO LUNCH BOX NO CUCUMBERS everyday because I had to rush and had no time to slice them. But I made it a point to eat them regularly. Ok ok I’ll turn off from school, college & come back to my recipe. As I was starring at these cool ones there stroke an idea how about making these cool ones Hot?? I horrored these cucumbers with sharp knife & got them into pieces then decided for a soup! What say? Amma never thought cucumber soup wud taste good but hmmmmmm it did! And from that day on I love these Cool ones Hot.

I miss Gaunche Taushe (the one we get in Mangalore). Any cucumber is Tain Tain Fish in front of these. But what to do after all its cucumber I have to compromise. Now that I started cooking after 3 days of rest (though I was not well I was on Cloud 9 as my sweet hubby was cooking for me) I decided to have something cool but hot & that was Cucumber Soup. Slurp! I love it. Here also my hubby dear lend a hand bcoz i wasn’t the old Aps( was still a bit feverish). Any ways after the entire story I pen down my recipe.

Here is what we need:
Cucumber -3 if small(or 1 large)
Onion -1chopped
Coriander leaves- few strands
Basil/Tulsi leaves – almost 10 leaves or say 2tsp
Garlic – 2 pods
Salt to taste
Pepper powder – 1tsp
Butter – 1 tsp
Corn flour -1 tbsp

Heat a pan and add butter.
Then add minced garlic, onion & fry until soft.
Add chopped cucumbers (peeled), basil leaves/tulsi, salt pepper powder & fry for 5 minutes (do not add water).
Remove from flame & allow it to cool.
Once its cooled grind into fine paste by adding corn flour.
Remove it in a pan heat and add required quantity of water.
Get it to boil and then serve hot.
Soup is ready to Slurp!
P.S: If u catch cold then u can add little more tulsi leaves and have this soup as it is really good for cold, but reduce qtty of cucumber (they tell cucumber is cold but not when heated) and increase the qtty of tulsi.

I m sending this post to Neha’s AFAM: CUCUMBER as well as her SWC: SOUP
