Tender Coconut Soup

you need 2 tender coconuts, vegetables of your choice- cut into tiny pieces, ground pepper, a tea spoon of cornflour, salt

separate the flesh from tender coconut water. i have used carrots, beans, Indian Spinach (basaLe), capsicum. cut a medium sized onion into tiny pieces( or you can grate them). heat oil. add the cut onions fry them until light brown, add the vegetables  and toss them for a minute on high heat. add salt. add the tender coconut water. add cornflour. when the soup begins to thicken remove from fire. Sprinkle ground pepper and top up with pieces of the tender coconut flesh and serve hot either in tender coconut shell as shown in the picture or a bowl :-)

Children will surely enjoy this soup since it has a sweetish tang.

Today happens to be World Book day. The book in the picture is 'Maps for Lost lovers' by Nadeem Aslam. One of the best books i have read in recent times. Reads more like a poem than fiction.

This  post is from my new laptop. i have yet to purchase baraha. hence this post is in English, Sorry
:-) (am not really sorry....)

If you have other versions of this soup do share.

ನಿಮ್ಮ ಎಲ್ಲಾ ಅಡುಗೆ ಬರಹಗಳೂ ತುಂಬಾ ಚೆನ್ನಾಗಿವೆ. ಮುಂಬಯಿಯವರಾದ ನೀವು ಇಷ್ಟು ಚೆನ್ನಾಗಿ ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಲೇಖನ ಬರೆಯುವುದು ತುಂಬಾ ಹೆಮ್ಮೆಯ ವಿಷಯ. ಅದರಲ್ಲೂ ನಮ್ಮ ಸಾಂಪ್ರದಾಯಿಕ ಅಡುಗೆಗಳ ವಿವರಗಳನ್ನೂ ದಾಖಲಿಸುತ್ತಿದ್ದೀರಿ. ಅಭಿನಂದನೆಗಳು!!

ಅಂದಹಾಗೆ ಬರಹ ತಂತ್ರಾಂಶಕ್ಕೆ ಬದಲಾಗಿ ಕೆಲವು ಉಚಿತ ತಂತ್ರಾಂಶಗಳೂ ಲಭ್ಯವಿವೆ. ಉದಾಹರಣೆಗೆ ನಾನು "ಪದ"ವನ್ನು ಉಪಯೋಗಿಸುತ್ತೇನೆ. ತುಂಬಾ ಉತ್ತಮವಾಗಿದೆ.
