Chilled Melon Soup
Chilled Melon Soup is inspired by the Spanish gazpacho and is my take on the classic tomato version. Perfect for Summer, stellar in it's flavour, Ready in 15 mins is now a family favorite.
- 1 muskmelon medium sized
- 1/2 watermelon small sized
- 6 - 8 mint leaves
- one lemon Juice of
- 1 onion small , finely chopped
- 5 - 6 jalapeno Canned slices
- 6 tsps hung curd
- Mint for garnishing
- to taste salt Black
- 1/4 tsp pepper freshly ground
Roughly chop both the watermelon and musk-melon in chunks.
Remove 1/4 cup of each melon from this and chop them finely. Finely chop two jalapeno slices. Mix the finely chopped onions and jalapenos to the finely chopped melons and keep aside. Add a little salt and pepper powder to this.
Using a mixer or a smoothie maker, grind together both melons, rest of the jalapeno slices and mint leaves using little water (around 1/4 cup). Add black salt to it and mix. This is the base of your soup.
Chill both the soup and the chopped melon mix for atleast 2 hours.
Just before serving mix together the soup and the melon mixture. Pour in a soup bowl and top with 1 tsp of hung curd and garnish with mint leaves.
Serve with toasted bread and salad for a lovely summer meal.
