Winter is the best season as you can see abundant produce of various exotic fruits and veggies. Was just debating to make this Soup. Madras Curry Powder plays a great role by imparting a superb flavour to this dish. Best served with buttered toast.

Chef’s Tips

1) If the Soup is too thick, dilute with little hot water.

2) Can also add little chopped paneer to the Soup.
