    About this recipe: This is a hot soup from India made with pineapple and lime juice, enhanced with the flavours of ginger, green chilli and cumin seeds. It smells and tastes so good served with rice.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 1 tablespoon minced fresh root ginger
    • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1 hot green chilli
    • 450ml (16 fl oz) water
    • 225g (8 oz) crushed pineapple (tinned or fresh)
    • 1 tomato, diced (optional)
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • small handful chopped fresh coriander
    • 2 limes, juiced
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin seeds

    Method
    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Use a blender or processor to grind the ginger, 1 teaspoon cumin and green chilli.
    2. In a medium saucepan, add water, pineapple, tomato and salt. Place over a low heat. When the pineapple and water have come to boil, add the ginger mixture. Raise and lower the heat to bring to the boil several times. Add the remaining water, and bring to the boil again. Add coriander, and remove from heat. Mix in lime juice.
    3. In a small pan, heat oil over medium heat, and add the remaining cumin seeds. Fry until golden, and add to the soup as a garnish.

    Tip:

    Roll limes against a hard surface with the palm of your hand to make them soft. This helps get the juice out.

    I was a little leery of adding tomatoes, but I went ahead and did it. This soup is so good! It's a great mixture of sweet and hot and just right. I served it with rice same as I would dal, and I can't wait to make it for Janmastami! Almost effortless and super quick on the hob. I think kids would love this recipe as it isn't too spicy and it mingles with the rice in just the right way. Super!! - 24 Jul 2008

    Went ahead and made this soup. Liked it very much. I think there may be another amount of water to be added that is not listed (see below) because it was a bit too salty for my taste. Didn't have a chili so used dried red pepper flakes. ++++ Planning on making this today but in reading the directions I see it says add the water and later it says add the rest of the water. It may be my dyslexia but I cannot see the sentence defining how much to add initially. Please help. - 12 Feb 2016
