VCC 174 - Sol Kadhi

Here is another delicious soup recipe which is kindly contributed by Monica Bhide to the group book project project 'You Can Cook for 'Feed a Hungry Child'.

Sol Kadhi recipe
Serves 4

8-10 pieces of kokum soaked in 1 1/2 cups hot water
2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
1/2 teaspoon cumin, pounded
2 – 3 green chilies minced
2 cups coconut milk
Salt and sugar

1. Strain the liquid with the kokum. Discard the kokum. Some people prefer to boil the kokum with the water to help it release its flavors.
2. In a separate pot combine the garlic, cumin, green chilies, coconut milk and a touch of sugar and salt. Mix them well. Add the warm pink kokum water.
3. Mix well.
4. Chill the soup for a few hours in the fridge.
