Whenever, I make this soup for my guests, they keep asking about ingredients because the taste and color of this cucumber soup is so unusual. My naughty self would keep them guessing. But today, I'm letting the secret out. I got this recipe from my aunt.
I have made this soup a number of times but always with nestle orange juice, so make sure you use packed 100% orange juice that's not a very sweet. Fresh juice doesn't give very good taste but if you use fresh orange juice than take sour oranges and also add a little sugar.
