Indian chicken soup

In Asian, Big dishes, Chicken, Soups on September 19, 2011 at 00:13

After a summer shorter than the lifespan of a fruitfly with bad genes, we (the lucky people of south-west Norway) are thrown head first into the rainy days of fall. I swear, the rain – it is nevereverending. We better get cheap electricity this winter!!

The soup has just the right amount of heat to it (for us westerners), and it´s the type of soup that everyone will like. Noah (my 2-year old) ate it too! And you´ll have dinner for a couple of days. What´s better than leftovers when you don´t feel like cookin´?

It is only so many plums one can eat without getting a tummy ache, so I did a little reasearch to get some inspiration. The result; cognac and spice-glazed plums served over vanilla icecream. If I must say so myself, it turned out lovely! So, if the trees in your backyard is heavy with ripe plums… make this! It was easy, I swear 🙂
