Carrot soup with coconut milk


Cold weather is here!!! Perfect time to relish hot soup for dinner.  I prefer quick recipes for dinner.

While looking for a soup in my recipe book I came across ‘carrot’ soup. I thought – why not try out few changes? In the original recipe, I had used cow milk. Why not try coconut milk this time? To increase spice level I added green chilli. To thicken the soup I added potato. I have some organic herb plants in my garden. I used rosemary to enhance soup’s aroma and taste. After all these changes it was pretty good. Hope you’ll enjoy..
