Winter Melon (Ash Gourd) & Cucumber Cold Soup
Few years back I could have never imagined drinking or eating a raw ash gourd :) But I regret now that i missed all these years :) This is a perfect summer recipe and with combo of cucumber and buttermilk it is heavenly.
It it believed that the Winter melon (Ash gourd) helps to loss weight !!! I don't know probably should give it a try ;) It is recommended to consume in the empty stomach early in the morning.. If you are up to something like that you should give it a try, else also I recommend to try it.
Preparation time: 10 mins
Serves : 2 cups
- Ash gourd - 2 cups
- Cucumber - 1 cup
- Buttermilk - 1 cup (diluted)
- salt - to taste
- Roasted cumin powder, crushed pepper - to taste
Basically add all ingredients together in blender and strain the chunks out and finally drizzle some cumin powder and pepper on top.
Adding spices is my preference you can leave it out if you don't want to. I like when the there is a tint of spice in the soup or Juice :) I hope it can be called juice too ;)
Some people like to add green chilli to it. But I dint want to add raw chilli to the cold drink. But as i said its totally upto you.
Hope you like it. Enjoy and Happy drinking !
