Do we need to count it, my mum is using it in a soup. Just a quarter cup of it??

It's a grain like rice or wheat so I would say, yes we should count it.

A quarter of a cup is not going to be a lot though. Is that across the whole soup? If yes, and there are 5 or 6 servings of soup, then the carb count will be negligible. If it is per serving, then weighing the amount in one portion it is probably the best for determining the carb content.
