Color Mania #7: Cream of Cashew Almond Soup

Cream of cashew almond soup2

It makes me really feel so sophisticated to start a lunch with a soup and end it with a dessert. :) And that too when the soup is made with almonds and cashews along with milk, do I have to tell you that its richie rich?! ;)

This soup especially tastes great both as a hot soup as well as a cold soup

The white creamy look by itself is damn tempting isn't it? :)

My little bugs bunny was starving on the showcase for years and now he is damn excited to see the soup ;)

Color Mania #7: White

Did you know?
  • White symbolizes purity, joy, and innocence.
  • White is the traditional color worn by brides in the western world, as well as in Japan.
  • White is a color of mourning in China and parts of Africa.
  • A white flag is universally recognized as a symbol of peace.
  • The ancient Greeks wore white to bed to ensure pleasant dreams.
  • More shades of white are available commercially than any other color.
  • Originally, scientists wore beige coats. In the late 19th century, medical professionals chose white ones. The color white was chosen because of the idea of hope and expectations for healing and recovery that the physicians would bring.
I have always loved the white pinafore with house colored belts that we used to wear to school on every Mondays. :) It gives a bright start for the week ahead. But then, I would never return back home white ;) "Kara Nalladhu" ;)

Method:

Soak the almonds in a cup of hot water for 15 mins. When cool enough to handle, slip the nuts out of their skins.

Chop the onion roughly and cook it along with the garlic in microwave or stove top. Grind the cooked onions, garlic, almonds and cashews together adding little milk to it into a smooth paste.

Add 2 tsp of water to the corn flour and dilute it. Take the ground paste in a vessel and add salt, milk and some water to it and bring to boil. When it is boiling, simmer the stove and add the corn syrup stirring it continuously.

Cream of cashew almond soup is ready to serve. Serve it hot with some white pepper added to it :)

This quantity will suffice 4 people.

Happy making :)
