If there is any soup whose taste lingers in the mouth long after, it is the creamy almond soup. Creamy, rich yet light on the stomach and palate, this soup makes a perfect start to an authentic indian meal. Milk, fresh cream and flour enhance the creaminess and forms the crux of getting the flavour of this soup right. Very mildly spiced, serve this soup if you have spicier dishes that follow in the menu. A dash of saffron may be added. Serve hot with slivered almonds and chopped coriander and a spot of fresh cream.

3/4 cup hot milk
3 to 4 drops almond essence
