When i did announced the event SWC:Soups, it was really hot here in Singapore. I didn't felt like having or cooking soups at all. And then i made that chilled refreshing Gazpacho Soup. Usually it rains a lot here in December and January, but as per records, this month January was the driest jan. in a decade. And it followed till almost end of feb. But, thanx god , now its finally raining, raining a lot (nowadays climate has gone so unpredectable), and we felt like having hot soups. So for yesterday dinner i made this along with Instant corn dhokla( recipe coming soon)
Something about Sweet potatoes,they are a great source of beta-carotene, essential for vision. The soup had a strong taste of ginger, and was perfect for a filling dinner in a rainy day.

2 garlic cloves,chopped
1 tbsp chopped fresh ginger
1 carrot, chopped coarsely
1 stalk of fresh lemongrass, thinly sliced crosswise
