Made with pineapple and lime juice, enhanced with the flavours of ginger, green chilli and jeera, this soup smells and tastes very very good served with rice.
Roll limes against a hard surface with the palm of your hand to make them soft. This helps get the juice out.
Complex flavors. very good. I sliced one boneless skinless chicken breast really thin (stir-fry style). a little oil in pan and I stir-fried chicken and then proceeded with the recipe- used a very large jalapeno as my pepper- did not have fresh limes, so I used 2 tbls. of key lime juice-added extra cilantro (love that stuff)- will make again.. thanks - 06 Aug 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I was a little leery of adding tomatoes, but I went ahead and did it. This soup is so good! It's a great mixture of sweet and hot and just right. I served it with rice same as I would dal, and I can't wait to make it for Janmastami! Almost effortless and super quick on the stovetop. I think kids would love this recipe as it isn't too hot (though you could add more peppers-I used a jalapeno!) and it mingles with the rice in just the right way. Super!! Haribol! - 29 Jun 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This soup is delicious! I added one maggi chicken stock cube and left out the salt. I also did not add as much lime as the recipe calls for and not as much water. One can add a little coconut milk if one desires, but it's equally good without it. Will definately make this soup again! - 24 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
