Cucumber Soup

Cucumber is one of the very low calories vegetables. It contains no saturated fats or cholesterol. It helps reduce constipation. It is a very good source of potassium, which helps reduce blood pressure and heart rates by countering effects of sodium. It is a great antioxidant. Moreover, it has high amount of vitamin K, which has been found to have potential role in bone strength.
I have come up with Cucumber soup which  is oil free, healthy and tastes very unique.


1.Cucumbers-8 medium size (Peeled)
2.Ginger-1 pc finely chopped (2inch long)
3.Green chilies- 2 (finely chopped)
4.Salt   to taste
5.Buttermilk -4 cups
6.White pepper powder-1 teaspoon
7.Lemon juice-2 tablespoons

1.Cut each of the cucumbers lengthwise into two halves and scoop out the seeds. Now cut into pieces and put in a blender jar.
2. Add 1 ginger, 2 green chilies, salt, 1 cup buttermilk and blend to a fine puree.
3. Add ¼ tsp white pepper powder and ½ tbsp lemon juice and blend again.
4. Pour into a soup bowl and chill in a refrigerator. Serve chilled.
