Sweet soup? And that too with tomatoes and tapioca pearls? Am I joking? It must be horrible or not a soup actually. It has every potential to consider it as just like any other sweet dish but is it worth to make just for the sake of having a bowl of soup at home? May not be for you but honestly, it has every quality to be considered as best ever eaten soup.

Believe me, this week was not for this soup rather I wanted to make something spicy in mushroom. But last week I went to buy mushroom in a big store and I picked two mushroom’s packets for Rs 95 as they are offering to buy one get one free. But while making a payment they told me that there was no offer at that point. So I had to pay Rs 95 for just one packet of mushroom and that is too costly. I still can remember in Delhi, I used to buy mushroom of the same size of a packet for only Rs 20. But here I had no option as no other store are selling mushroom. I could return that packet too but do not know why I didn’t. LOST money!
And for all those reasons this week no mushroom is being purchased, so I tried this sweet soup and it was awesome.
All you need to make this sweet soup are tomatoes, tapioca pearls, sun-dried mango pulp, cashew nuts, sugar, salt, oil and spices (ginger, saunf, cumin powder and roasted coriander powder). It won’t be so thick or smooth if you prefer smooth and thin soup then you can go ahead and adjust with extra water. Blend tomatoes properly in a mixer grinder and remove seeds before blending.
