A cold soup from Algeria that needs no cooking and is delicious when served on a hot summer noon.

I used:


Plain yogurt- 2 cups

Garlic-2 cloves,minced

Ice water-1/2 a cup

Coriander leaves

Salt,pepper and chill powder to taste

  1. Grate the cucumber[with the skin] into a bowl.
  2. Add yogurt,garlic and coriander
  3. Add salt and pepper and mix.
  4. Chill for an hour.
  5. Stir in ice water.Adjust the consistency of the soup by adding more water if required.
  6. Pour into bowls and serve garnished with chilli powder and coriander leaves.


  • You can use mint leaves instead of coriander leaves.
  • You can even omit chilli powder .

This cool soup is off to AWED African hosted here.AWED is the brainchild of Divya who blogs @ Chef In You

Happy cooking…
