Even though the days are long and hot nowadays, you can still have soups. This chilled delicious soup is perfect for lunch on a hot day or for a light supper. We Indians are used to having cucumber and curd as raita. This is a slight twist with few additions, cold and refreshing for your taste buds.
I have never known that soups can be served hot and hearty as well as cold and refreshing! I had a bunch of cucumbers that had to be finished within a day. There were too many to make our usual salad or a raita for just the two of us. So as usual I was goggling for some cucumber recipes and stumbled upon this which said chilled cucumber soup. I was surprised. This was the best way to use the cucumbers and also I had a different dish that we thoroughly enjoyed. The original recipe had called for avocado. Since I did not have it, I never used it. I was able to get the creaminess without the avocado. I just used thick fresh home-made curd.
