Melon And Watermelon Soup

4.30 from 3 votes

Who said that soup should be: 1. Hot 2. Spiced 3. Made with only vegetables/meat 4. Simmered with stock vegetable / meat 5. Cooked till thick.
Thinking beyond the normal soup making, I opted for a soup with fruit. In the hot summers we crave cool recipes and cannot eat much of carbohydrates. For people like me, I am averse to anything hot.
This soup was the successful implementation of merging simple summer fruits and juices into a medley so lovely that I could not have enough of this! I also made this recipe exclusively for adults using sweet wine for a Champagne party for one of my friends.
As I did not attend the party I got rave reviews for the version and so am sharing the same here as well.

I am a passionate foodie who loves to cook, serve and love to see people relishing my creations. Since the time I was small I used to wonder about the 'how' of things in the kitchen.

Then when I finally ventured as an unprofessional kitchen helper for my late grand-mother (a par excellent cook in her own generation) I was fascinated by the amount of stuff you could do to a simple milk and rice to form a most yummy pudding.

Here I am sharing my recipes with a will to learn from some and educate others as well!
