Apple Soup & Announcing the winner


Wish all my readers a very Happy New Year! :)

Hope you all celebrated the eve and new year pretty well just like me :) Oh yeah, I was away from Chennai for the first time to celebrate new year!! I partied along with my beloved Hyderabad friends and relatives this year. All thanks to buddies out there who hosted me so well and so did the city, chill and breezy all the time, so apt for touring :) 

I'm back home right now and feeling completely fresh and new! The new year is here and I am up with a lot of energy and enthusiasm. Have loads of plans for this year and resolutions made up in the mind. Just hoping to go on with the same energy :)

I was completely biased to sweets and thought my first post of the year has to be a sweet! but it so struck to me that a year should be completely balanced with all flavors and tastes and so came up with this sweet and spicy apple soup :)

Keep reading until the end to know the Kettle Tea house giveaway winner! ufff don't skip the recipe!!! :P



Apple - 2
Cinnamon stick - 1/2 inch piece
Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
Mixed herbs - 1 tsp
Salt - for taste
Pepper - for taste



Peel the skin of the apples. Chop them into fine pieces or grate them completely into a microwave safe bowl. 

Break the piece of cinnamon and add it to the apple. Pour in 1/2 cup of water to it and microwave it at high for 6 mins. The apple would be completely cooked by now (you can also steam cook it in your pressure cooker for 1 whistle) Allow it to cool down. 

Remove the cinnamon pieces and grind the apple into a fine puree. 

Now add enough water to make it into soup consistency and boil it for few mins. Add pepper, salt and mixed herbs. 

Serve it hot with some bread sticks. 

The soup would be sweet as well as spicy. The natural tang of the apple would make it definitely different and delicious :)
