Mango, Radish and Carrot soup (ZERO Oil)
In this creamy soup recipe, radishes, mango, carrot are cooked and pureed with the exotic flavour of garlic and curry leaves. The combination is fictitious and works well without adding any cream or grease.
The Mango variety used added a blended taste of tangy (Tamrind) and Jaggery (Sweet).
It’s a comforting, thick flavourful packed soup and perfect fusion is fresh bread.
Radish is extremely low in calories, but with potential anti-cancer benefits on account of their being a cruciferous vegetable (the same family as cabbages and Brussels sprouts).
Carrots are the most prolific food source of beta carotene – a potent antioxidant which blocks the action of free radicals that can damage DNA. Low levels of beta carotene have been linked with cancer and heart disease.
Enjoy this for dinner or lunch

Delicious soup, what a flavorful combination of fruits and vegetables. It’s amazing what can be done with no oil, no skimping on flavor.
Each time all of your comments make me feel blessed and encouraged….thanx dear Suzanne. …:)
Mango in soup, wow looks super cool!! Does it taste sweet Chitra?
Thanx dear, have included mango pic now thanx for reminding me, I actually discussed with my hubby about adding the pic but later it totally vanished from my mind…it was similar taste of katta mitha with mango flavour- I used mango which was not either ripe nor unripe….which we use for thokku. .
ohh katta mitha taste is always great, yummy 🙂
Sounds wonderful Chitra, and I love the presentation!
Dear Lori, thanx for your lovely words, presentation is what am learning from you all. …thanx a million bunch. …have a lovely day…
Chitra, how do you think of these unusual combinations? I am always amazed.
Oh dear Aruna thatz really sweet of you but it’s all encouragement from friends like yourself and my dad’s blessings I guess. ..so thanx for lovely words and boosting me up….
Love the combination! Mango and coconut sound great. Coconut milk is adding some good fats so of course you don’t need the oil.
Aneela – Thanks for your visit and the feedback…You are right about Coconut milk…However Oil carries more calories and fat than low calorie coconut milk…hence tried this variation
That looks yummy. This is one to be bookmarked, now that fall and winter will be here soon!
Ya agree this will be a winter relish for sure….wait to hear how it turned out for you…thanx a million bunch…
You come up with the most exotic combinations, Chitra. Never seen a ripe mango in a soup. Is this soup somewhat sweet? 🙂
Mango which I used was katta mitha taste you can take it this was like as we use blend of jaggery and tamarind in rasam/ sambar with mango flavour. …I was bit afraid of the outcome but for we Asians it’s like a rasam I could say. ..We enjoyed with rice…ha ha..:D:D
Mmm that looks delicious! Love the use of mango 🙂
