Linking this recipe for the "Sshhh cooking secretly" event on Facebook.  As part of this challenge, a theme is selected at the beginning of the month by one of the participants. All the members are grouped in pairs. The participants will exchange 2 secret ingredients with their partners who are supposed to prepare a dish that matches the theme of that month. This month's theme is "Soups" chosen by Priya who blogs at The World Through My Eyes. Priya happens to be my partner for this month as well.

Priya gave me onion and pepper powder and I gave her garlic and coconut milk as her secret ingredients. Priya came up with a very soothing and healthy carrot soup with coconut milk. She has a collection of interesting recipes, of which few to mention include "Hyacinth Bean Stir-Fry With Fenugreek Dumplings" and "Fruit and Nut Chocolate Bites".
