Coconut Soup with Shrimps and Chicken

On with 0 Comment
Coconut Soup With Shrimps And ChickenRich creamy soups are always welcomed by my family members. That's why I always try to add multiple ingredients in a soup base. Normal coconut soup tastes great, but with the addition of spiced up shrimps and chicken, it simply rocks. For best results, only fresh coconut should be taken to create this soup. If shrimps are not available in your area, you can omit them altogether. Depending on your taste, you can make the spicy version of the same. For a richer taste, you can also add cashew paste to this soup. As always, I'll suggest you serve this soup hot right before the main course. It's extremely appetizing and helps in digesting the food. So let's make this rich, creamy and scrumptious soup.
