Welcome

Welcome in my blog !
First let me tell you that, as it is the translation of a French blog, I use the metric system for my measurements and all the temperatures are given in Celsius !

New category: I tasted it for you. The idea is to pick up random products that are unknow to me, to taste them, cook them, describe them and give my opinion on them.

Enjoy !

Cucumber soup

Français 

Here are two Indian recipes. I served this soup with the Malabar fish which is very spicy.They really go well together. You can eat this soup chilled or lukewarm; it is perfect in summer, especially if you are not hungry. But I wouldn't recommend it for a main course, it is better for a starter and small quantities.


Ingredients (for about 2 litres soup)
3 cucumbers
3 onions
1.5 litre stock
35 cl heavy cream
1 teaspoon ginger (in powder)
Chopped coriander
Salt and pepper

Preparation
Cut the cucumber and the onion in dices. In a saucepan, brown the onions in some oil, add salt and pepper. Add the cucumbers, brown for 1 min. Pour the stock and cook for 25 min, stir from time to time. Blend and add the cream and the ginger. If necessary, add salt and pepper, and place in the fridge.
Serve chilled with coriander.

What I noted the day after: it was impossible to preserve the soup! So you should make just the quantity you need for one meal!

Bon appétit!!!
