About

This hearty Indian inspired soup was made using fragrant spices, fresh herbs, and seasonal ingredients. The Soup was quite flavorful and delicious, with a slight hint of spiciness combined with a trivial sweet flavor. Most importantly my Dad loved it, he raved about the delicious combination of flavors, the creamy consistency, and the beautiful vibrant orange coloring of the soup !
