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.
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
