Sugarcane Soup

sugarcane soup4

Looking for an appetizer to make your kids eat well? or are you looking out for a different soup to make??? Your search can comfortably end with this simple yet delicious Sugarcane soup :)

Sugarcane in soup!!! yup its quite different but I swear this sweet and hot soup is awesome and there is a lot of chance that you fall for it :)

I used to hate sugarcane juices since the process of extracting the juice as well as the shop which sold them used to be a bit too dirty and unhygienic. It was a no no for me always until a few months back when I found this little shop next to my place which was much better when it comes to cleanliness. The sophisticated machine juices the cane is a neat fashion and the juice is served in clean disposable paper cups :) Waaa that made me start liking sugarcane juice :)

My cousin made this soup for me when I visited my native last time and I fell in love with it :) Here it is for all of you to make and enjoy :)

Salt - for taste
Pepper - for taste

Method:

Chop the ginger and pulse it in the mixie by adding just a tsp of water to it. Now squeeze and extract ginger juice.

Take the sugarcane juice, water and ginger extract in a pan and heat it for few mins. Just when it starts to bubble, simmer the flame and add lime juice and salt to it. Mix well and switch off the flame.

Delicious sweet and hot sugarcane soup is ready :)

Serve it hot by sprinkling pepper in top. This quantity would make 3 servings.

Enjoy making :)

Note:

Don't let the soup boil for long, this might spoil it.

Add lemon juice only after simmering the stove otherwise the soup would become bitter.

Have a lovely weekend ahead :)

I use to have the juice during the celebration in the temple(We call celebrations in temples as the ulsavam's). people camp with tents and serve sugarcane juice. I understand that they are not hygienic and the same applies to food we have from the hotels.

I happened to peep into a restaurant in the neighborhood and saw the person cleaning the wash basin and the plates with the same cloth... yak! I had food twice from this restaurant...

It is always safe to have the food from home, and a plus point when you are a good cook ;)

Sugarcane soup is worth a try.
Hmm... here the house mates emptied the gas cylinder and have to eat outside until it is filled.

Have a nice weekend Nithya...

jayasree said...

The idea of soup with sugarcane juice is interesting...

Archana said...

Nithi I was about to close the browser and go cooking. The name intrigued me and hence i waited to read this post. Love it. I love sugar cane juice and rather not think about the hygiene there. They say 'Dristi aad Shrusti' i.e. there is another world where you cannot see.

This one is something I will try.

vidhas said...

I love sugarcane, munching on it fresh to drink the juice. But I've never bought juice or heard of a soup. This sounds really good and will definitely want to try it.

Pushpa said...

Looks superly duperly goood.Love it as long as its extracted cleanly.

Kris Ngoei said...

Never thought that this is possible, but I guess you know better! And I am game to try :-)

Jyoti said...

That is the most unusual soup I hv come across! Very unique!

Cynthia said...

I love cane juice so much. Very interesting what you have done with it.

Lena Rashmin Raj said...

woww.. tis a unique recipe.. never seen or heard of this Nithya.. :) snap and that mug is really nice

Bharathy said...

Novel recipe clicked in a classical way!

Plateful said...

Sounds like a novel idea. I've always enjoyed sucking juicy sugar cane bits and even enjoying the juices from road side stalls. But this soup sounds much more fun. Lovely styling, as always. Especially loved your cute cups.. :)

Nisha S. said...

I never ever knew, never ever thought, never ever imagined anything sugarcane beyond juice! This was definitely unique!
