Tender Coconut Soup

Tender coconut soup2

Tender coconut in soup!!!! Yup, I came up with this idea when I was craving for a soup this afternoon :) The flavor is evident and different from a clear soup.

This soup has natural sweetness of tender coconut water and the chunks of veggies and tender coconut make it so delicious and filling. I bet you would love it! :)

Tender coconut soup

Ingredients:

Tender coconut (Elani) - 2
Carrot - 1
Garlic - 2 pods
Ginger - small piece
Corn flour - 2 tblsp
White pepper powder - for taste
Salt - for taste
Coriander leaves

Tender coconut soup1

Method:

Break open the tender coconut and collect the water in a cup.

Scrap out the tender coconut and dice them into small squares and keep it aside.

Peel and dice carrot into small cubes. Chop garlic and ginger finely too.

Take a tsp of oil in a pan and drop in the chopped ginger, garlic and carrot pieces and fry for a min. Sprinkle some water and close the pan with a lid for the vegetables to get cooked. Once done, pour in the tender coconut water and allow it to boil.

Take the corn flour in a small bowl and dilute it with 2 tblsp of water.

Pour the diluted corn flour syrup to the boiling soup while stirring continuously. Simmer the flame and allow it to boil for few more mins. Add salt and the reserved tender coconut squares to the soup and give a stir.

Sprinkle white pepper and finely chopped coriander leaves and serve hot.

Enjoy a very different soup :)

Tips:

Add the coconut pieces only after removing the soup from flame.

You can add more veggies like beans etc to the soup.

Is creativity your middle name? There are tender coconuts here but I have never thought of this even if my husband told me about this( which he has not) I would have scoffed at his idea. Love it. Will definitely make it. Thanks.
