Apple and Coriander Soup

The Valentine’s Day special - 2: The ‘easier’ recipe, for all the people married for a few years now, with a diet-conscious wife. And the ideal way to keep her happy - nutritious apple and coriander soup. Show her you also care for her health and diet.

Preparation time: 30-45 mins

Serves: 2


Apples 2

Coriander (kothimeera) 4-5 strands
Chopped ginger 1 tsp
Cumin powder (jeera powder) 1 tsp
Crushed/powdered oregano 1 tsp
Crushed powdered basil 1 tsp
Crushed/powdered thyme 1 tsp
Dry parsley powdered 1 tsp
Crushed/powdered pepper 1 tsp
Salt to taste


All the above herbs are available in any supermarket so scout for them. Sometimes mixed herbs are also available, even that will do.

Finely chop a tsp of ginger. Cut the apple into cubes (without peeling preferably).

Boil the apple cubes and coriander together for around 20 mins. Alternatively, pressure-cook the apple and coriander to 2 whistles. Drain and set aside to cool.

Once at room temperature blend fine and creamy.

Add to a cooking pot/pan/vessel and add water as required (most of the time around a cup of water will do).

Add cumin powder, oregano, thyme, basil, parsley (or a tsp of the mixed herbs), salt to taste, crushed ginger and pepper. Leave to boil for around 5-8 mins.

(For the cleaning, clean the blender and set the kitchen. Leave the woks, else your wife might not believe you actually made a soup :P)

Apple and coriander soup is ready. Serve into the soup bowl with the masala papads, candle light and red roses.
